Where Do Odd Socks Go?
Have you ever wondered where do odd socks go? Yvonne has for most of her life. So much so, she’s written a 36-page book for 5 to 10-year-olds, Where Do Odd Socks Go? Yvonne draws on her experience as a human rights advocate and a carer for troubled youth to take kids on a journey to Egypt, where socks began. The main characters are a twin girl and boy, because Yvonne wanted them to have equal strength and intelligence.
“I love kids, their imagination, their endless curiosity,” she says. “I wrote the book because on the surface I wanted to create characters that were fun and relatable, concurrently showing a story it is OK to be different.
“My socks are a metaphor for what kids perceive life to be like; a sporty kid, a skinny kid, a gay kid, a kid that is bullied, a poor kid, a smelly kid and a disabled kid.”
