5 Stars from Readers’ Favorite
What is a mom to do to when she walks into your room and finds a shirt, a sock, and more clothes on the floor? Why, she tells you the tale of the Sock Monster, of course. What is a Sock Monster, you ask? Let your shirts, your socks, and pants lie about the room, and you may soon find out the answers you seek!
Sock Monster written by Stacey R. Campbell is a charming children’s pictorial book introducing young readers the concepts of responsibility, tidiness, and consequences. Stacey Campbell knows how to appeal to readers of all ages. The plot of Sock Monster is not only a fun story for children to read or have read to them, but it is also a great resource for parents or guardians to utilize within their home environment. What adult wouldn’t want to find a way to get children to pick up their dirty clothes?
As a parent myself, I can’t speak for all who are around children or have them, but it is nearly impossible to get children to pick up their toys, let alone laundry. Upon reading this book to my young daughter, I asked her, “Do you have laundry on your bedroom floor?” She responded with, “Yes, oh no, the sock monster will visit me tonight, I better go clean it up.” And clean it up she did. Children’s books are meant to educate or entertain small children. Sock Monster certainly does both with its pages filled with vibrantly colored illustrations, and a creatively thought out modern day “folk tale.”

“An unexpected twist and wacky, well-rendered illustrations keep this simple picture book from skewing a bit preachy and dark, despite its clean-your-room lesson.”
“￼￼Sometimes I worry that my kids will grow up with a warped sense of reality. I have a tendency to stretch the truth to make tasks more fun…That’s why Sock Monster is right up my alley. If Sock Monster can get kids to put their clothes in the laundry basket instead of making my floor a cloth-slip-and-slide, so be it. Complete with adorable illustrations, this book is hilariously spot on with kid friendly humor.”
