Can you help Rocky Rocks find his socks? If you can see, you must tell me, what colour sock you can see? I’ll give you a clue, it rhymes with bed, could it be the colour… Rocky Rocks and the Colour Socks is a fun and interactive way of learning through rhyme by Seniha Slowinski. Illustrations by Nick Roberts.


Living with her husband and her lovable Rocky in South East London Seniha Slowinski has enjoyed over a decade long career in the print advertising industry. When the recession hit about ten years ago she was out of work for over a year, which is when she decided to study and become a professional fitness instructor and because she loved dance so much qualified as a Zumba teacher. Seniha started to rent halls at local community centres, church halls, local gyms and schools teaching from pre-school level to primary age and teachers.

I'm thrilled to be reviewing this book on publication day and the first day of the tour! Rocky Rocks and the Colourful Socks is a lovely little book that I read with my 3 year old god- daughter and she absolutely loved it. Full of beautiful and fun illustrations the story follows Rocky, a mischievious pup as he play hide and seek with colourful socks. In the book, Rocky is looking for the socks. The story is told in rhyming verse and clues about the colour of the socks are within the rhyme. The child reading the story must try and guess the colour. Rocky searches every room in the house from the bedroom to the basement and even out into the garden shed.

The book is beautifully written. A  quick read that will demand to be read again and again so if you are buying this book for your children expect this to turn into a favourite bedtime read. The illustrations are colourful with lots going on in them to provide plenty to talk about and encourage conversation about whats happening in the background of each picture. And, Rocky is super cute! This is a sweet little book where we get to meet the real Rocky at the end much to the delight of my god-daughter! Highly recommended.
