Sally and the Purple Socks

Sally and the Purple Socks by Lisze Bechtold is a fun story about a little duck (I think) that orders and receives a comfy pair of purple socks. They arrive too small to fit, but a note tells Sally that they will grow to the size she ordered. Oh wait, did she specify the size? So the socks grow and grow and grow. And Sally, being the clever duck (I think) that she is, begins to use the pair of socks around the house--scarf, hat, curtains, bedspread, carpet, the tent of a circus...Thankfully, it begins to rain, and the socks shrink back down to the most perfect fitting socks, ever.

*Make predictions about how Sally will use the socks around the house as they grow.
