While youngsters enjoy classics like Pat the Bunny, they also delight in silly books that leave them rolling on the ground laughing. Fire up the belly laughs with a copy of Cece Bell's Sock Monkey Boogie Woogie ($10).
As the Big Celebrity Dance quickly approaches, Sock Monkey realizes he has no date for the event. Desperate for a dancing partner, the simian fellow holds auditions that prove unproductive. The auditioning robot is "too clunky" while the plastic troll is "too funky." Using his creative juices, Sock Monkey stitches together his own partner — a mirror image of himself. Sock Monkey and Sock Buddy have loads of fun boogie wooging the night away.
Parents can use the felicitous tale to spur family activities — make your own sock monkeys and have your own dance party!
