I requested a copy to review and the author was kind enough to honor that request.

Hector Hectricity is about a biracial Muslim family called Parack who enjoys family times and matching socks. They find comfort in simple joys such as family picnics outdoors. Life was a breeze until they had to move to a new place and their matching socks started missing.

The mystery of the missing socks sends the mother of the house into stress mode and she implores her Lord and seeks others’ help to resolve the matter. And that’s the moral of this colorful children’s book; getting children to invoke the name of their Lord often and not to feel shy to ask for help.

My son enjoyed pointing at mother Parack. I guess it reminds him of me. He also giggled at my voice and intonations to entertain him. Finally, he kept wanting to stare at the front cover. *Laughs*

To continue, the book has a knitting guide at the end to make colorful socks. I love colors and I think I’ll try this activity  just for fun.

Without being too subjective or biased, this children’s book is representative of my own family because I’m in a biracial marriage. And I like Hector Hectricity and the Missing Socks because it helps fill the diversity gap in children’s literature that I have also planned to fill in the future God willing.
