"A rollicking rhyming paean to shoes."
-- ALA Booklist
"Joyce's pictures are animated, energetic, and warmly colored."
Here are shoes to skate in, shoes to skip in, shoes to turn a double flip in . . . all worn by four tousle-headed active young children. Illustrations keep all the action with the skippers, divers, and doers. Story hour groups will be checking out each others footwear after hearing this rollicking rhyming paean to shoes. SLJ.
