    amazing kids series

    The Susie's Shoeies Series is based around a young girl, Susie, whose Grandmother gives her magical red shoes for her eighth birthday. These magical shoes get named "Susie's Shoeies" by her amazing and resilient rhyming brother, Bennett. The magical shoes allow Susie to travel throughout time, to talk to famous and/or significant people and to experience significant historical events to help Susie deal with issues in her present day life.

    In the first book the world changing pioneer, Eleanor Roosevelt, teaches eight year old Susie, as well as other girls, that they have value. Mrs. Roosevelt speaks to Susie about her work in gaining equality in our county in the 1948. Susie learns so much more than a history lesson. She learns to stay calm during emergencies, to slow down and to think rationally while solving problems and to tackle inequality with "spunk and determination" (p. 78).

    I love the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." The book really captures the meaning behind that statement.

    What a great book to kick start a series!
