I Forgot My Shoes

Overview

Have you ever had one of those days when you'd forget your head if it wasn't attached? Well, imagine what happens when the whole family is having one of those days.

Overview

Have you ever had one of those days when you'd forget your head if it wasn't attached? Well, imagine what happens when the whole family is having one of those days. Mom dashes out of the house without her purse, and Dad leaves his coat behind. It must be catching, because the school bus forgets to pick up the kids, and the soccer team forgets how to play. But worst of all, the little girl of the family forgets something very essential: her shoes. Will tomorrow be any better?

Award-winning composer/performer Jessica Harper brings us rollicking verse to accompany Kathy Osborn's richly colored, lively artwork in a collaboration that reminds us that today's hectic pace will turn into the opportunity of a new day tomorrow

In this rhyming story everyone has a forgetful day.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
When everyone around her becomes afflicted with memory lapses, a young girl's ordinary day becomes an adventure. From relatively minor forgetting—an overcoat, a backpack—the rash of absentmindedness escalates to grandiose proportions as the bus driver forgets to take the children to school and the teacher forgets the day of the week. The girl, who keeps reminding readers that she has forgotten to put on her shoes, describes the day in a deadpan tone; the juxtaposition of absurd instances of forgetfulness and her calm retelling provides all the humor in this outlandish tale. Released from the bondage of the daily routine, Harper's characters are free to explore the unbeaten path: the soccer team, lacking their ball, plays hide-and-seek while the puppy, missing his meal, samples the sofa. Osborn's sophisticated illustrations, with off-kilter perspectives, are deeply hued and color-laden, fairly leaping off the page. This offbeat book will stir readers' imaginations.
