Come join Suzie and help her find her silly socks.

Author Sandra Novello has created a lighthearted children's educational and pictorial book. The book is filled with vibrant and creatively drawn illustrations as well as a fun, well rounded and age appropriate word structure and vocabulary, sure to excite and enhance the imaginations of young readers everywhere.
