Shoes. I think it's safe to say that most little girls love shoes and each pair can drum up a vivid playtime, full of creativity and fun. These shoes can transport a girl to a myriad of settings and events, allowing for a fun-filled romp through the imagination.

From the very first page, I was carried back in time to when I was a child and the worlds I created through shoes. I loved how each page introduced a new type of shoe with a rhyme that relates to the way this
What an absolutely delightful read! The reminiscence of being a little girl and childhood and trying on and wearing Moms shoes is the main highlight of this story. The colorful and charming pictures introduce new shoes at the turn of every page, sharing in the little girls dream of all Moms shoes. There is also rhyming on each page, which correlates with the types of shoes. And the pictures are sweet, adorable, and colorful, bringing to life the story of Shoes. Author Yvette Cragun and ...more

I don't think there is a child out there who hasn't wanted to wear their parents shoes. My kids sure did- all the time. This book is about a young girl trying on her mother's shoes and imagining herself in different places with them on. The words have great rhythm and rhyme. The illustrations are bright and happy. It's a great book to read aloud to young children. Very cute!

- I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

Ballet shoes. Tennis Shoes. Fancy high heels. When I first saw the different kinds of shoes that are shown in this book, I was taken back to the times that I wore my mother and grandmother's shoes and I also remembered when my daughter wore mine. Shoes that were much too big for our little feet but never too large for our dreams and our imagination!

This is a 32 page, softcover book and the bright, colorful illustrations and rhyming text make it fun to see and fun to read. Shoes is the perfect

This book is one of those I wish I would have had when my daughters were small. I loved the way this book is full of bright colors. The illustrations were really well done. Theyd be engaging for young kids.

I loved the way the author did her rhyming. Sometimes kids books are really hard to read with some of the rhymes. This book wasnt that way at all. Its easy to read and the story in it is really cute.

I think this will be a favorite book to read of girls everywhere. And probably their moms too!
