Sock Monkey Boogie Woogie: A Friend Is Made: 01/07/16
One of my earliest childhood memories is watching my grandmother make sock monkeys out of my grandfather's old work socks. Nowadays it seems that sock monkeys come pre-made. They seem to have gone from being a rainy day project to something kitsch. I'm not even sure if the type of socks — two shades of gray with a red heel — are even still produced.
But Cece Bell is old enough to remember the days when one had to make her own sock monkey. In Sock Monkey Boogie Woogie: A Friend Is Made, a sock monkey needs a date for a party. He asks all the other toys but they all politely say no. What's a sock monkey to do?!
Well — make one, of course! And teach it how to dance. It is a dance party after all.
