Have you ever been afraid to say, do or wear something so much that you had a nightmare about it?
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.”
This book was very cute. My kids laughed every time we came to the phrase of how Willie slips, slides and spins all over because mommy had a hard time saying it – Talk about a tongue twister.
The pictures were great and my kids really enjoyed the story. When we were done reading it, we talked about how something new is not always stupid and ugly and you should not be afraid to try it. In the end, everyone might like it, just like how the kids loved Willie’s new stupid, ugly shoes!
