If ever there was a book that has both entertained, educated and, indeed, expanded the imaginations of my 3-and-a-half year old, my husband and myself, it’s Fox in Socks. I’m not sure if it’s the delightful red fox, his trendy yet comfortable blue socks, his antics or the other, equally zany characters he encounters throughout the story that elates my daughter so, but we have a lot of fun reading the story and discussing it after.
And yes, my husband and I do have fun reading the book to her – although the ‘fun’ does diminish after about the third consecutive time we’ve read the story – because we’ve had to give out tongues quite a workout with all the rhymes and funny phrases throughout. Now, we can safely say that we can make short work of any phrase Dr Seuss can throw at us, and our little monster has been able to engage in humorous rhymes to the point that she is even creating her own. Perhaps some day she’ll give Dr Seuss a run for his money.
