Review: Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson
by Heather McBride
My Thoughts: This is a great book for children, to help them with accepting ways in which they are different from others. And for helping them to accept others’ differences from the masses, too. The story is very cute, and I think many kids will be able to relate in some fashion – what kid hasn’t been nervous about being accepted by others? Heck, what adult hasn’t worried about that from time to time? After the story reaches a positive conclusion, there are activities kids can do, and discussion questions. Both are fabulous, and really make this book a valuable addition to any child’s home library.
My Rating: 4 stars
