I grew up having this story read to me so had to buy for my little girl. The illustrations are a bit faded, but the story is a cute one that teaches sometimes getting bigger can be hard, but is also a lot of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favourites March 20 2011
By heather
I love this story. I first purchased it over 16 years ago for my daughter Sarahs second birthday. We read it many times together and it remains one of her favourite childrens books. Over the years I have read it many times to my preschool classes. As the copy was not actually mine but my daughters and knowing she would not want it to get lost or ruined (as things tend to do at preschool) I thought I'd better buy my own. As it is out of print I was so happy to find a used copy in excellent condition (actually much better than my daughters well loved one)on line. My 3-5 year old class sit mesmerised with the beautiful illustrations and lovely interesting text. If you can find a copy it is well worth purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Make The Right Sound! April 27 2005
By 47223 - Published on Amazon.com
Sarah's old boots make a special sound and the fit just right. But then one day they have shrunk and no amount of stretching by filling them with rocks and other means will ever make them fit her again. When they go to the store to buy a new pair of boots the only ones they have are yellow with a fire engine red stripe and Sarah will never like them! They are taken home. She gives her favorite boots to her brother and he loves them because they fit him perfectly. After it's rained again Sarah's family pulls on their boots. And when they play in the puddles Sarah's new boots make a different sound, but she doesn't mind after a while because they are just as much fun as the old ones and now she is enjoying the puddles with her brother.

The Pictures are well done because they cause you to be drawn into the story and feel exactly how Sarah felt thru the detailed expressions on her face and the characters used to compliment her.

Opinion: Most well done childrens books (at least in my experience) become memories when children grow up, thru the illustrator's pictures, if they're done well. And then the story is remembered thru that art not usually the other way around, in ages about 1-8 or so, then as they start to get into books that are more grown up they create their own pictures thru imagination so illustrations aren't as important in older childrens books.
