Last week, we read about bouffants, and this week, shoes! Shoes for Me! is another cute first picture book, this time by Sue Fliess (check out her website to see a trailer of the book!). A rhyme filled story about a hippo and her search for the perfect shoes. Her feet have grown and it’s time for new shoes, but too many choices can leave a hippo tired and overwhelmed! Finally, she spots a pair, but are they the perfect pair?
My daughter and I had a great time reading aloud this story. The rhyme made it easy for her to predict words and as I read it, I would stop and let her guess what word she thought made sense. The pictures are bright and colorful and she enjoyed going through the book and picking out her favorite pair of shoes.
I would recommend this book for ages 3-5.
