5.0 out of 5 stars Shoes? my gosh yes March 19 2013
By Storywraps TOP 500 REVIEWER
First of all let me say that all of the books that Sue Fliess has authored have been excellent! I particularly like the main character in this book because so many girls are struggling with body image and the little hippo is carefree and enjoys being in her own skin.

Hippo is growing up and now she can go and choose her next pair of shoes. What girl is not enamoured by a shoe shopping spree? With fun rhyme married with outstanding illustrations this book is a true winner. Sorting through the shoe-options is not only educational but loads of fun. The spirit of the book is uplifting and the tempo is fast moving. Hippo and her mom have high (heels) and low (sneaker) moments when choosing the perfect pair but Hippo finds that if the shoe fits (and she likes it) wear it.

This will be a great book for girls of any age and a perfect read-aloud for the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable and Too True to Life Aug. 7 2011
By Amazon Customer TOP 100 REVIEWER
When a young hippo grows out of her shoes her mother takes her on a shopping expedition to choose her very own pair (with some limitations of course). Written in flawless rhyming prose, Sue Fliess' Shoes For Me! Is so reminiscent of trips to the shoe store with my young daughters.

Anyone with little girls will completely relate to the hippo's wild enthusiasm for trying on every pair of shoes in the store. From flip-flops to roller shoes and everything in between, it seems like the perfect pair of shoes will never be found! We too have left a long trail of discarded pairs of shoes in our wake while shopping, and my three shoe-loving daughters love this whimsical and truly delightful children's picture book.

They have spent hours pouring over Mike Laugheads colorful illustrations of different shoe types, 'I like this one.' 'No, I like this one!' The competition is particularly fierce as to who will claim the sparkly, pink, and purple shoes, though some of the more unusual pairs have also elicited squeals of delight and questions to mom about what kinds of shoes these are exactly. (I'm sure they are wondering where WE could buy a pair of many of them.)

I'm not sure what it is about little girls and shoes, but Fliess certainly has their fascination and indecisiveness nailed in this charming book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! Feb. 13 2011

My granddaughter, who is almost 4, simply loved the book! She had me read it 3 times. She kept asking why the mommy said "no" to the one pair of shoes that cost too much. She loved picking out which shoes she liked best in the book and identified with the shoes that were too tight. She insisted on taking this book with her on vacation. Looking forward to more from this author!

This book is adorable. The rhymes are fun to read out loud, and the beautiful illustrations are the perfect compliment. The search for shoes is always stressful for my children, and I appreciate having a book that makes it fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars lyrical children's book Feb. 19 2011
By danielle spila - Published on
Love this book. Reads so lovely and my preschoolers love it. Especially the one who loves shoes and what little girl doesn't. Kids can identify with the wonder of shopping for that first pair of shoes themselves. Parents won't mind reading this one again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shoes! Sept. 12 2013
By M. Herrero - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a gift for my soon to be two year old granddaughter. She loves books and I thought this would be one to include in her library. The rhyming and repetition are perfect for toddlers. Since she doesn't like to wear shoes this book may give her the incentive to wear them!
