Stay at home parents have so much work to do. As a family that had two working parents for the longest time, I didn’t really understand that. Then, just over a year ago, we decided to have my husband stay at home, something he had always wanted to do. It has completely changed my understanding of the work that goes into staying home! I’ve had a front row view of this for the last 11 months as I have worked from home due to COVID. Watching him manage e-learning, cooking, cleaning, laundry, emotional breakdowns, and me…well, it’s quite the undertaking.
The Story of the One-Sock Monkey wonderfully celebrates stay-at-home dads, and I was so excited to get the chance to read it! This is a beautiful tribute to an author’s husband, but also to all fathers, especially ones that stay-at-home!
Both of my kids really enjoyed this book. They were excited to see another dad like theirs. The story follows one little boy and his dad throughout their day. It was fun to see what they do, and I enjoyed the feeling of family strength throughout. I liked the balance of not only dad in the story, but also mom as she comes home from work to join them.
Overall, I thought this was a lovely book that is perfect for any child. It portrays a loving family and gives you all the warm fuzzy feelings!
