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.
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.
