Slippery Willie’s Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson
by Abi Buening
I like the fact that the author states in his dedication page that we are all different and made special in God’s eyes. God didn’t make any junk. The story was very cute how Willie slips and slides all over the place without his special shoes. At the end of the book the author gives some interactive activities that can be done to incorporate this book into a class room. There are also discussion questions to get the pupils thinking and talking. This book could be a very good tool in teaching on accepting everyone as they are.
