Author Biography

I started writing Super Socks with the intention of using mismatched socks as a metaphor for celebrating our differences. It was actually during the writing process that I found out that there is a day, March 21st, when the world celebrates Down syndrome so I decided that the main character, Molly and her spunky little sister Katie, would show readers what it can be like to have a family member who is differently abled.

Molly's sock drawer was overflowing with different socks. Most of them didn't have a match and both Molly and her sister Katie did not mind wearing them. Molly called them super socks and she was sure the washing machine ate socks. The idea of super socks was Katie's because she always wore different colored socks; hot pink with orange and so on. Though Katie was only three, she liked to help. Every morning Katie put out the socks for Molly to wear to school and she wore them without asking any questions. Katie had Down's Syndrome and she was funny and kind. She loved it when they both wore mismatched, colorful socks. Her friend Billy sometimes teased Molly about her socks and she never found his jokes funny. The ice cream man, Sam, was Katie's favorite and he called her Princess Katie. Will Billy finally agree to Molly's idea of super socks? We'll have to read the book to find out.

Super Socks by Connie Bowman is about acceptance, kindness, and courage and the author teaches young readers a wonderful life lesson through the story of Katie and Molly. It is a good story to help children accept their differences, understand they are unique, and celebrate life. Kelly O'Neill makes the concept tangible through her wonderful and lively illustrations, giving clarity to the author's words and message in a beautiful way. The story also gives information on Down's Syndrome in an engaging way and will help parents, tutors, caregivers, and therapists dealing with Down's Syndrome children in teaching them to love, learn, and have fun like anybody else.
