Overview

Two-time Caldecott Medalist and New York Times-bestselling picture book creator Chris Raschka pays tribute to one of the most quintessential events of childhood-getting new shoes-in this boldly illustrated and inspiring book for the youngest reader. When a young child discovers a hole in a sneaker, mother and child embark on a big childhood adventure-a trip to the store to pick out new shoes. From having feet measured and making a selection to finally showing off the new shoes to a friend, this momentous child moment is treated with respect, excitement, and page-turning energy in a wonderfully age-appropriate picture book. Caldecott Medalist and New York Times-bestselling picture book creator Chris Raschka joyfully captures the event from the child's point of view. New Shoes is a preschool classic in the making.

Raschka takes a common experience and personalizes it by employing the visual perspective of a young child...the page design, along with the loose, amiable watercolor-and-gouache illustrations, elevates the book. Vibrant and full of energy, the pictures fully engage the reader as a participant in the story. -- Booklist
