Welcome to the world of Little Sock! Little Sock is an adorable sock who lives in the drawer with all the other socks. Today, however, he's about to go on a fun adventure.

Little Sock Makes A Friend, is a follow-up to the 2019 book Little Sock, that introduced the unique protagonist to readers. In this sequel, we learn that Little Sock lives in the sock drawer with all the other socks...but he has a secret. At night, when the other socks have gone to sleep, Little Sock sometimes sneaks out of the drawer and heads to the dryer. Behind the dryer is a tunnel that goes to Sock City! (And now the adults reading know where all those missing socks go!)

Little Sock loves going to Sock City because there is so much to do. He can play with a hula hoop, ride the Merry-Go-Round and check out the fine dining. Unfortunately, there are also lots of things that require a friend - volleyball, anyone? When Little Sock spots another sock who is by herself, he thinks that she could possibly be his friend. But how do you ask someone, or some sock, to be your friend?

Little Sock Makes A Friend is a creative story to help youngsters get over the fear of making friends. It's not every day a reader gets to follow a sock down a dark tunnel behind the family's dryer to a magical land full of happy socks. The text is very simple and is accompanied by lighthearted illustrations of Little Sock and all the other socks who live in Sock City. This would be the perfect book for a shy child or one who is going off to daycare, or preschool for the first time.

Quill says: Little Sock Makes A Friend is a super-cute story that shows little ones that making friends isn't a scary process, and that the fun you can have with a new friend is awesome.
