Ages 4-6. Snappy verse and vibrant oil paintings are a winning combination in this joyful celebration of shoes. From treasure-filled attics and flower-filled meadows to the bright lights of Broadway and an endless stretch of seashore, a diverse group of children--African American, Asian, Hispanic, and Caucasian--praise favorite footwear: "On Tuesday I wore tap shoes / Buckle and strap shoes / With one little snap shoes / Learn how to dance shoes / Twirl and prance shoes." Although a close inspection reveals that some of the young faces are awkwardly rendered, the overall visual impression--expansive compositions with bright colors and dynamic, shifting poses--is so strong that it really doesn't matter. A delightful choice for lap-time sharing or to use in concert with Hurwitz's New Shoes for Silvia , this aesthetic treat is also an amusing way to learn the days of the week. Julie Corsaro
