I am always excited when I am approached to review a new book for children. I think reading is one of the best ways that we can connect with our children and encourage a lifelong interest in reading.
I was not disappointed when I received "Shoes for Me!" By Sue Fliess. I immediately opened it and read it to my mom. Yes, you read right. I was with my mom at the time so flipped it open and read it with her. She thought it was a really cute book. I agree. I love the Hippo's. I also love that the author used an experience that we all have to go through (shoe shopping with toddlers) for a subject of a lighthearted and fun book.
Shoe's for me is a book about a little hippo who must find new shoes and travels to the shoe store with her mother. The hippo faces the challenge of all of the choices the shoe store offers. I loved the flow of this book and rhyming. This is such a fun book to read with kids. I am looking forward to future books in this series. Check out the author's page: http://www.suefliess.com/
I read "Shoe's for Me!" to my 4yr old niece who loved it. She was pointing out items in the illustrations that I had missed. She loved the book! She even looked for it on her next visit (I had it put up for this review) and we read it again.
I must also mention that the illustrator Mike Laughead created the perfect illustrations for this book. I can't tell you how much we loved the hippos!
