One Shoe Two Shoes

Bloomsbury. Jul. 2019. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781547600946.
PreS-Gr 1–A rhyming celebration of footwear meshes with views of a curious hound and 10 wily white mice who hide in everything from rain boots to clogs, even a shoe box, until executing their grand escape on a pair of roller skates. Hart’s text reinforces colors and counting, and Underwood’s humor twinkles with his comic dog’s expressions.
VERDICT Great for storytimes due to the large format and charming folk-art drawings in pencil and ink with computer assisted collage. Also an excellent choice for newly independent readers
