Overview

An ode to growing up, this read-aloud book commemorates the first pair of shoes a child owns and the many memories created while they walk in them.

I tied your red shoes for you today.

Where will you go in them?

How many steps will you take?

So many since the first.

Was it yesterday or long ago?

A celebration of early childhood, this book highlights the many steps a toddler takes: from the initial wobbly ones and stopping in puddles to walking in the park and the all-too-soon day when that first, beloved pair of shoes no longer fit. The lush watercolors and rhythmic, evocative text document each proud moment, while reinforcing universal themes of independence, exploration, and unconditional love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Your Red Shoes is a gentle, heartwarming story perfect to read aloud and share with little ones. Soft, watercolor and pencil artwork complements the simple story about a young girl taking steps toward independence. Highly recommended, ages 2-7." —James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review

"This is a sweet book, a book that talks to the child like a bedtime story in its quietness and simplicity, asking what adventures your red shoes will take you on. If you're at all nostalgic, this is a sweet book to share with your little one." —Denise Barker, weesied.blogspot.com
