The photos of the sock monkeys are like colorful portraits of relatives and friends; my six-year-old is convinced that one of the photos is of his big brother's best friend, Calder. He's also sure that another photo of a somewhat stern looking monkey is absolutely and unequivocally our (meanish) neighbor down the street. Our 15-year-old is entranced with the outlandish outfits that some of the monekys are sporting. The book is a perfect size and has the look and feel of a marvelously kooky schoolbook from my childhood.I tried to get the 2008 sock monkey calendar by Arne Svenson and Ron Warren, but it was sold out by the time I ordered. This time I didn't wait. I just bought multiples of the book and am putting them away as fun gifts for the holidays.
This little book is packed with a huge amount of character and creativity. The sock monkeys have a loveable humor and sincerity that comes from the hearts and fingers of all the many people who sewed them. The pictures are nice on the eyes because the colors are rich and beautiful and the textures of the yarns and fabrics are touchable. This book is being loved by everyone in my entire family. It's a great book.
This is a very sweet book with no text, just portraits of sock monkeys. The monkeys are all different, and the paper that the images are printed on is of very high quality.
If your'e looking for a book that will show you how to make a sock monkey like I did. This is not the book all this has is pictures of sock monkey. Not very helpful at all.
