My Sad Sock

Length: 10 pages6 minutes


In spite of taking the utmost care with your laundry, have you ever carefully tracked every article of clothing you load into the washing machine, only to come out minus a sock in the end?

In this story a poor little sock has returned alone from the laundry, having lost its mate. The search is on, but how long will the sad little sock be alone in the sock drawer, pining for its mate? Will they ever be a pair again? A sweet short story for young children, who may have already had a similar experience!

Young children (and older ones, too!) often apply human qualities to inanimate objects. This author thought it would be fun to explore the possibilities of a sock left to pine for its mate, whereabouts unknown.
