Children's Review: The Sockkids say No to bullying
We received this book to give an honest review.
K and I have read about the Sockkids before and enjoyed the adventure they went on. In this story we meet Ethan and Olivia and of course Sudsy and Wooly. The new kid Olivia keeps to herself and when Ethan sees that she enjoys reading like him he wants to make friends with her until a group of boys start picking on him because of it. When they tear up his book the sockkids Wooly and Sudsy come to the rescue and in doing so help introduce Olivia to Ethan. It goes to show that just because you are bullied you don't have to stay silent. Though I would have liked to have seen what the consequences to the boys that were bullying Ethan and others.
After this incident it seems that Olivia and Ethan along with two other children become friends.
As a parent I thought this was a good book to read to K and I truly enjoyed at the end of the story the information on bullying. From a small quiz to asking questions on if you are getting bullied.
This book is more for the ages maybe 7 on up just because the sentences are longer and I think that age group might understand the story a lot more than the younger kids.
