Book Review: Willie’s Slippery Feet
by Laurie Danas

I had the opportunity to review a wonderful new children’s book called Slippery Wille’s Stupid Ugly Shoes. The story is very inspirational. It touches on the delicate issue of being different; and how it is okay if you are different. It is a truly sweet and funny story.

The story:
Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the “stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world.”
Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The story and illustrations were quite enjoyable. I would recommend this book for children, parents and teachers.
