Book Description: The SockKids focus on educating children and adults how bullying affects us all and what we can do about it.

Do you know where your socks go when they go missing in the washing machine? Well, the SockKids know! The SockKids are a mismatched family of socks that sometimes time travel through the spin cycle, teaching universal lessons of love and kindness, and focusing on creating a greater awareness of the many social issues that children are faced with today. The SockKids help to educate and encourage children from 2 to 92 to find solutions in helping to make this a better world.

In this story, Sudsy and Wooly discover their human is being bullied at school and team up against bullies with Ethan’s newest friend, Olivia. They discover bullying hurts everyone and staying silent is not an option.

More Inside! Children’s counselor and licensed therapist, Jamie Ross, gives adults and children guidelines on how to handle bullies.

 The SockKids say No to Bullying is a cute book.  The socks talk and carry out dialogue through out the book, so considered fantasy genre.  This book is geared toward those students getting ready for chapter books.  I wouldn't say it was a picture book because there is more reading on the page than picture, but each page has a small picture.  The story is wonderful and the message is a very needed on. It is a book that will keep a student's interest as to what will happen next. I was wondering myself what would happen next.  The talking socks are bound to get the attention of kids.  And I made a connection while reading when Ethan wore the mismatched socks.  Love it kids will definitely relate that is for sure.  I can't wait to see what other adventures the sockkids might come up against.  I'm totally putting it in my classroom library.
