Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A spirited centipede tries on many different types of shoes, sandals and boots in this adorable book, which communicates an age-appropriate math concept for early readers. The rhyming text and captivating illustrations will have young readers hooked as they ponder the dilemmas of every centipede: where to buy shoes, what kind to buy, where to store them and how to tell left and right shoes apart. Children learn that the centipede has 100 feet. Because shoes come in pairs, a centipede will need 50 pairs. However, a discerning centipede may choose to buy sets of shoes, such as five sets of 20 or 10 sets of 10. Children are sure to be amused when they see this centipede reclining on the beach with sandals, decked out in a cowboy hat and boots, striding with loafers and a pin striped suit, etc. What a fun way to "Step into Reading," as this publisher's series is called. 2002, Random House

    ONE HUNDREDS SHOES: A Math Reader by Charles Ghigna. Random House. This week, Courtney took out 8 books from the library. I believe she took out so many because in school they are only allowed to take out 1 book a week whereas at the public library, there are no limits on how many books a child can take out. I'm reviewing the ones we liked the best first and One Hundred Shoes is definitely at the top of the list. All About One Hundred Shoes One Hundred Shoes is a Step into Reading math reader. It was written by Charles Ghigna and illustrated by Bob Staake. It has a copyright date of 2002 and was published by Random House Children's Books. According to the first page of this book, Step into Reading is designed to give every child a successful reading experience with the grade levels assigned to each book to be used as a guide for the parent to determine which book may be most suitable for their child to read. Step 1 - Ready to read, Preschool through Kindergarten, has big type and easy words. Rhyme and rhythm and picture clues. Step 2 - Reading with help, Preschool through grade 1, basic vocabulary, short sentences and simple stories. Step 3 - Reading on your own, Grades 1 to 3, engaging characters, easy to follow plots, popular topics. Step 4 - Reading paragraphs, Grades 2 to 3, challenging vocabulary, short paragraphs, exciting stories. Step 5 - Ready for chapters, Grades 2 to 4, chapters, longer paragraphs, full color art. One Hundred Shoes is a Step 2 book and has an ISBN# of 0-375-82178-3. The Story One Hundred Shoes is a rhyming story about a centipede and his feet, or rather, what he puts on them. Obviously, if he has a hundred feet he's going to need a lot of shoes and the poem is all about where and how he gets his shoes. Does he buy them in a mall or online? Does he wear slippers, clogs, sneakers, boots, sandals, loafers? Where does he put them all when he sleeps? These are all questions asked in the poem and in the end, the poem states he thinks he knows why the centipede walks around barefoot. Why We Recommend One Hundred Shoes One Hundred Shoes was an instant hit for both Courtney and myself. I really liked the educational aspect of it, which is simple but perfect for her grade level: 'Shoes come in pairs. Pairs are so nifty. Two shoes in each pair, so you will need fifty' Courtney loves shoes so she immediately took to this book. We both had fun looking at all the different shoes that the centipede was wearing. We pointed out which ones were boots and which ones were slippers and so on. We looked at the different designs and colors on them and just had a fun time reading the story. Another reason why One Hundred Shoes is a winner is because the words are written in large print and are simple. This is another book that Courtney can read all on her own therefore, it's been read many times already. All in all, One Hundred Shoes is a book that I would most definitely recommend to anyone with small children, especially if they are beginning to read on their own.
