A cave is a pocket for a bear,
a breath is a pocket full of air.
A hat is a pocket for your hair,
and a seat is a pocket called a chair...

A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes: A Pocket Book is a whimsical pocket full of bells and balloons, ice cream and mud, giggles and hugs. Elizabeth Garton Scanlon's delightful verse is captured in Robin Preiss Glasser's energetic artwork, which follows four families through a busy day exploring the surprising ins and outs of the world's pockets.

This special book will leave readers young and old with pockets full of joy!

This book uses poetry to talk about everyday things that belong together. It would be a great book to introduce analogies and metaphors to young students.

I purchased this book, intending it to be for my 4 year old twins. Indeed, they adore it and ask me to read it to them all the time, but to my surprise my older two children love it too. My 6 and 8 year olds enjoy reading it to the twins, and have found many little things that I had missed the first few times through. The observations, comments and ideas it has sparked in the older two have been so much fun for us all. I certainly hope the author comes out with another book soon. :-)

I read to my children before they go to sleep so I'm always looking for a gentle book that I can read over and over again that will make them feel cozy warm and loved. This book achieves all these things. The rhyme is so charming with a rhythm that is like a song, and the ending, 'my heart is a pocket full of love' says it all. My son asks me to read it at least 3 times before bed, and I enjoy it each time. I found this book because I always like the books illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, and this one is now my new favorite.
