Shoes for Me! By Sue Fliess ~ Children's Book Review

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!
