Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson
by Marilyn Meredith
Slippery Willie's Stupid Ugly Shoes is a fun book to read with great illustrations. Though there's definitely a message contained in the story, it is delightfully told. It's the kind of book that would be great to read in a classroom--and there's a bonus at the end: questions the teacher can ask the kids to get them thinking.
Author Peterson has done a fantastic job showing a kid who is different and how he's treated at school, but in a fun way.
This book is recommended not only for classrooms but also for moms and dads to read to their kids.
I loved it.
