"Party dresses, party hair . .
Need new party shoes to wear.
Emily, Ashley, Kaitlyn, Claire!
Let's go find the perfect pair!"
A rhyming romp through a shoe store with a creative twist solution, this fluffy picture book has little nutritional value, but plenty of girlish heart.
What I Love:
Reminiscent of the Berenstain classic, Old Hat, New Hat, Shoe-La-La! celebrates individuality, creativity, and being a girl. Though I admit, my 9-year-old boy is just as enthralled by the energetic illustrations and tongue-twisting text.
|Made with Crayola Model Magic.|
2. Buy a shoe decorating kit or make these fabulous clay versions from Crayola.
4. LeUyen Pham's darling girls can be traced and made into paper dolls. It's a chance for your child to show her own brand of style. Be sure to have plenty of glitter, pom-poms, and ric-rak on hand. You can also use Sherri Osborn's basic, unisex template.
