Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Katie and her friends, JoJo and Pedro, need to buy new shoes. They each have a special quality that they are looking for in their shoes. Katie wants shoes with pizzazz and so she tries on pair after pair of shoes. As she searches for the perfect pair of shoes, Katie helps a teary little girl learn to enjoy the task of trying on shoes. The characters' dialogue quickly moves the plot through three chapters. There are color illustrations throughout the book. Katie is depicted as a Chinese American girl and seems to be stereotyped with round framed eyeglasses. There's a weak attempt to use multicultural characters in the story without a clear purpose. Readers will find a glossary with a pronunciation guide at the back of the book along with a few discussion questions, writing prompts, and an activity to reuse old shoes. There's a publisher's website with additional activities. This book is just one from the "Katie Woo" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
