Sock Monkey goes to Hollywood came home the other week after a trip to the local library. I love a story for kids which is fun for us parents to read too. (There are only so many times I can read a Dora story......) Here is the link for the author, Cece Bell's, blog page. There are a few more books in the Sock Monkey series so here's hoping Santa puts them on the list.
I'm also considering this tutorial so that a sock monkey can live with us too.
