Sock puppets have always been successfully used in story telling and for entertaining family fun. They are also fun to make. We used puppets a lot at the local library story time hour when my kids were really little. Now my kids want to continue the tradition by making some sock puppets to entertain their younger cousins.

As the title says, this books does offer some great techniques and tips for making sock puppets. However, this book offers so much more than a few simple sock puppet patterns. Which is why I am including a flip video with this review, to give you a better idea of the vast variety of projects this books offers to the reader.

In the introduction the authors point out that in the "Ultimate Sock Puppet Book" you won't be told specifically what to make or exactly how to make it. Instead this book offers a base of techniques to build upon. The book has an anatomy section for making all the different animal body parts. The authors make it easy for the reader to find a specific section, for example: how to make a tail or add teeth. It also covers hair, fur, eyes, noses, mouths, teeth, wings, arms, legs and more! If you wanted to make a certain animal that wasn't featured in the book you could easily pull together all the elements and you would be all set to create your own version of that animal in a sock puppet. If you wanted to create something from your imagination you would also be well equipped with all the techniques you would need to create fantasy critters and creatures.

The book covers both sewing and gluing construction methods and since the kids are not big fans of the sewing, they will be using the gluing methods for sure! However, the sewing is pretty simplified so if you have basic sewing skills, they are easy to follow. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a new inspirations on how to create their own sock puppet menagerie or just be inspired. The Ultimate Sock Puppet Book projects are a fun family orientated craft projects that provides both fun and educational opportunities for kids learning to make craft their own sock puppets.
