Blog Tour: Book Review - Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson
by Kathy Habel
2 important lessons are taught in the short picture book. It's not nice to make fun of others who are different and sometimes we worry too much what others will think.
I admit about half way through I wasn't sure about this book. I was feeling pretty bad for poor Willie and wondering where the author was going with the story. It wrapped up in a way that made a great story to teach children about differences and how we treat others. This book would be useful in a classroom setting especially one with children who have disabilities.
