Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From barnyard to beach, from city lights to country meadows, this exuberant collaboration features a multicultural cast and a collection of footwear that would put a gleam in Imelda Marcos's eye. Burton's sprightly verses (``On Friday I wore new shoes / Bright and shiny blue shoes / Twinkling in the light shoes / Sparkling in the night shoes / What a pretty sight shoes!'') skip nimbly across each page, begging to be read aloud, and giving each day of the week, each new narrator and each pair of shoes its own special flavor. Ransome's ( Red Dancing Shoes ) vibrant oil paintings at times recall Caroline Binch's Amazing Grace ; his medium and style are different, but he has the same knack for catching children joyously being themselves. Ages 3-up. (May)
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Marilee Robin Burton's bouncy rhyme about shoes each day of the week is an ideal antidote for a blue day. This rhyme sings of high shoes, tap shoes, tennis shoes, even no shoes. Children prance, dance, skip, and hop across each page. Ransome's children reflect our multi-cultural society and are as joyous as the text. "On Monday I wore tie shoes/ Sturdy lace up high shoes/ Tie them in a bow shoes/ know them in a tangle shoes/ Oops - don't let them dangle shoes."
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This book is not just about best shoes, but about all kinds-``...tie shoes/Sturdy lace up high shoes''; ``...play shoes/Gray shoes/Run all day shoes''; ``...sun shoes/Just for fun shoes.'' The toe-tapping, rhyming text begs to be read aloud. Ransome's sumptuous paintings capture the sheer delight of wearing new, old-and, best of all-no shoes. Bathed in light and practically jumping off the pages, these multiethnic children parading their footwear brim with life and energy. Sure to become a favorite for story hour sharing.-Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
Julie Corsaro
Snappy verse and vibrant oil paintings are a winning combination in this joyful celebration of shoes. From treasure-filled attics and flower-filled meadows to the bright lights of Broadway and an endless stretch of seashore, a diverse group of children--African American, Asian, Hispanic, and Caucasian--praise favorite footwear: "On Tuesday I wore tap shoes / Buckle and strap shoes / With one little snap shoes / Learn how to dance shoes / Twirl and prance shoes." Although a close inspection reveals that some of the young faces are awkwardly rendered, the overall visual impression--expansive compositions with bright colors and dynamic, shifting poses--is so strong that it really doesn't matter. A delightful choice for lap-time sharing or to use in concert with Hurwitz's "New Shoes for Silvia" , this aesthetic treat is also an amusing way to learn the days of the week.
