Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes (ebook review) - A MUST Read!
by Tara Funair
Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes was a perfect book to read to my boys.
They are so concerned with how others see them. Whether their friends, classmates, and family will accept their clothes, or quirks, and old/new toys.. It's ridiculous!
My boys will lose sleep, make themselves ill, and have little panic attacks over these silly little things.
I loved reading this book to them. I even asked hubby to sit with us when I read it because he is the exact same way.
My 5 year old did not like it when everyone laughed, because he doesn't like to be laughed at.
Our children are so wrapped up into what others think of them or their possessions, even their family, that they forget to be children. It's important to teach our children that it's okay to be different, that it's sometimes a good thing. We also much teach them to respect and tolerate others who are different.
The author of this book lives (locally) in my area, which I thought was cool! AND it's his first book. Even better!Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the "stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world." Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.
