I really wanted this for my preschool group because the pictures are fun and I think they would enjoy the adventure. But I'm worried some concepts might be a bit past them. So perhaps I'll move it up to the K-5 group and decide whether or not I'm going to read or book talk it.

An adorable story that shows friendship has no bounds. Oscar travels across town to go to his owner and best friend's school to give her something she forgot at home. Younger children would love to read this book and follow Oscar as he goes on his adventure.

Oscar is an extraordinary sock monkey who goes on an exciting big city adventure in order to help out his best friend. Story has fun illustrations and is very cleverly told. It held Flora's attention, despite it being a "wordier" book.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun story of adventure and excitement, but it also teaches children about planning and reading maps, too. The little sock monkey is cute and the illustrations are fun. We enjoyed reading this story together.
A wonderful story of a little sock monkey who has an adventure to bring the key to the bunny cage to his best friend Susie. Might be to much text for a story time book.
