Description of this Book

I lost my sock! says Fox. Have you seen it? So begins Ox s ridiculous attempts to help Fox find his missing sock. He presents each new option just before the page turn so the reader has a moment to decide for him or herself whether Ox has, in fact, found Fox s sock. At its heart, I Lost My Sock! is the story of a funny misunderstanding between friends. But it s also about pattern, color, and shape recognition; comparing and contrasting; and object identification. Mastery of these skills enriches a child s vocabulary, prepares him to understand letters and numbers, and helps him gain a better sense of the world around him. Elio s bold, geometric character designs further reinforce the early math concepts hinted at in this book.
