Acclaimed author Joyce Dunbar teams up with an exciting new talent — her illustrator daughter, Polly — for this singsong tale of a baby who takes to the sea, the air, and the shops — in a shoe!
There once was a baby
Who lived in a shoe
And had learned how to say,
"How do you do?"
For one adventurous baby, there's no limit to the places you can go when using a shoe as a mode of transportation. Sailing by dolphins, tootling to the zoo, flying with birds, even sipping tea with the queen are all in a day's play — until a noisy one-shoed giant stomps by and a giantess sobs that she's lost her baby, "Boo-hoo-hoo." Is it finally time to shout "peekaboo"?

My daughter loves this book! I've had to renew it from the library 2 times already. We have to read it every night before bed and she knows it so well she 'reads' it with me. It started with a repetative phrase 'How Do You Do?' and now she can practically recite the whole thing. Just the right length and we find rhyming books are the best.
