I received this gorgeous picture book from the author today and I just couldn't wait to have a peek inside it! This is a delightful story about a fairy who decorates his home, and finds a use for all those socks that become mismatched or simply disappear mysteriously. But this fairy likes t

What an adorable read!!! Very colorful illustrations and words just flow off one another allowing the book to easily be memorized for fun with kids. This is amazing for children 2-10. I would especially recommend it for preschool and kindergarten. Fun book for kids (and parents) who wonder where there socks go! Will be reading again and following the author for more!

What a charming book! Did you ever wonder what happens to your missing socks? Why they get holes? Or why they get mismatched? The sock fairy knows why.

I picked this book up because I had read The Knot Fairy, also by Hinman, and really enjoyed it. This is beautifully illustrated, and, like The Knot Fairy, its childlike, whimsical feelings come through. And also like The Knot Fairy, it comes with a CD that has a song about The Sock Fairy and a reading of the book.

Bella's school librarian recommended these books to me - simply because "fairies" are a big deal in our house. The 'tooth fairy' and the 'sleeping fairy' have always been regular visitors here, but we now have the 'sock' and 'knot' fairies that visit since reading these stories. A fun read if your child "believes" in fairies, as mine do.

I just liked this book because it is a very creative and fun book! Losing socks is something that happens to all of us, and it was an adorable explanation as to why it happened. What a great way to teach creativity and writing creatively to children.
