My New Shoes
Publisher: Boxer Books
Young bear’s feet are growing, so it is time for him to get some new shoes. His father ensures he is wearing nice clean socks, and together they journey to the shoe shop. After his feet are measured, he looks at the footwear on offer. From school shoes and wellies to sandals and trainers, there are so many styles to choose from. There are even shoes that look like sharks, and ones which light up in the dark!
He tries on a pair in his size and walks around in them, making sure they fit well and feel comfortable, before happily skipping home in his new shoes.
Vibrant illustrations and rhyming text capture the excitement of this familiar experience, making this an ideal tale for toddlers who are embarking on their own visit to the shoe shop.
