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...

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!

About the Author:

Elizabeth Garton Scanlon is a poet, writer, and teacher. A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes: A Pocket Book is her first picture book. Ms. Scanlon lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and two daughters.



Robin Preiss Glasser actually wore tiaras and tutus when she danced with the Pennsylvania Ballet. Now she happily spends her days in jeans, drawing. She has illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including the bestselling Fancy Nancy series. She won the Children’s Choice Award for Best Illustrator of the Year for Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet. Robin and her family live in Southern California.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Here's a rhyme book that will appeal to kids' fascination with containers. The concept, abetted by Glasser's madcap illustrations, is that the world abounds in nontraditional pockets. The rhymes follow four families, at home and on day trips to the farm and the zoo, with part of the fun seeing how the families cross paths. Pockets are everywhere: caves are pockets for bears; a lake is a pocket for a duck; giggles are pockets for a laugh; arms are pockets for hugs; ears are pockets for a whisper. The story's comings-and-goings are nicely anchored by the children's getting dressed in the morning and being tucked in at night. Glasser's pastels enliven the action throughout: kids run, dance, and jump; soup spills; the wind tosses hats; and bubbles leak out of a bathtub. Fast-moving and fun. Connie Fletcher
