Product Description A cave is a pocket for a bear,a breath is a pocket full of air.A hat is a pocket for your hair,and a seat is a pocket called a chair... A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes: A Pocket Book is a whimsical pocket full of bells and balloons, ice cream and mud, giggles and hugs. Elizabeth Garton Scanlon's delightful verse is captured in Robin Preiss Glasser's energetic artwork, which follows four families through a busy day exploring the surprising ins and outs of the world's pockets. This special book will leave readers young and old with pockets full of joy! From Booklist PreS-Gr. 2. Here's a rhyme book that will appeal to kids' fascination with containers. The concept, abetted by Glasser's madcap illustrations, is that the world abounds in nontraditional pockets. The rhymes follow four families, at home and on day trips to the farm and the zoo, with part of the fun seeing how the families cross paths. Pockets are everywhere: caves are pockets for bears; a lake is a pocket for a duck; giggles are pockets for a laugh; arms are pockets for hugs; ears are pockets for a whisper. The story's comings-and-goings are nicely anchored by the children's getting dressed in the morning and being tucked in at night. Glasser's pastels enliven the action throughout: kids run, dance, and jump; soup spills; the wind tosses hats; and bubbles leak out of a bathtub. Fast-moving and fun.
