School is about to start once again, which means it's time to go shoe shopping! I don't know about you, but I have many memories of shopping for that brand new pair of shoes for the new school year and couldn't wait to walk the halls, holding my breath that nobody would step on them and get them dirty!
In Shoes for Me! (Pinwheel Books) by Sue Fliess, young readers can experience that joy over and over again as Little Hippo goes shopping for new shoes. There are a lot of choices though--jewels, glitter, shoes that zip, shoes that light up, and summer shoes that flop and flip. Hippo realizes that finding shoes can take all week and perhaps it's even hopeless--that is, until Little Hippo spies one last pair she has to try.
Written in rhyme, this story is one fun book! Not only does the rhyme roll off your tongue, young readers will enjoy the playful illustrations and your little fashionista will be holding her breath for her very own shoe expedition.
Please visit this Thursday when I have the fortunate opportunity to interview Sue Fliess and learn about her inspiration for Shoes for Me! (Pinwheel Books)!
