Recommended for: This silly book written in rhyme empathizes with kids whose feet feel uncomfortable in socks, and it gently pokes fun of the great lengths parents will go to in order to find socks their child will wear. In the end, Tommy eschews these accommodations, picks out a pair of socks on his own, and tolerates the discomfort because he wants to get to school to play with his friends. It’s a great way to start a conversation about strategies for tolerating discomfort when sensory accommodations aren’t possible or don’t seem to be helping.
