2007 2x2 Award

Baby Shoes
by Dashka Slater


When Baby chooses a new pair of white shoes, everywhere he goes, he adds a layer of color! Soon his shoes look like a map of his young life. What would a good mother do as Baby romps from puddles to plums?

Rhymes and repetition make it fun for younger students.

For older students, Baby Shoes makes a sweet seed that will sprout into autobiography writing!
