Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes (review)
by Michelle Cantu
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.
This is a must read for every school aged kid. My ten and two year old both enjoyed the story of Willie. We can all relate to the idea of being made fun of. As a parent we teach our children to be comfortable being themselves. It was nice to have them read a story that they can relate to, interact with and enjoy.
I love the questions at the end of the book. A very nice surprise that even my ten year old was excited to take part in.
A great story I was happy to read with my children.http://www.slipperywillie.com
