This New Shoes book is very wonderful indeed! It very gently and reassuringly takes us through what it's like to go out shopping for new shoes. Lets face it, new experiences can be quite frightening for little people.
What I liked the most is that both Princess Polly and Pirate Pete feature in this book, making it just perfect for both girls and boys. I also really liked that it's very good for a wide age range, my 4 year old and 9 month old both loved it!
Pirate Pete and Princess Polly both need new shoes, so they both go shoe shopping. It's a bit of a fun adventure, finding the right pair and trying on lots of different shoes on. They even have Hooray for new shoes button, which is another little plus!
The illustrations are big, bold, bright and very eye catching. We loved watching Pirate Pete and Princess Polly try on and choose their new shoes. Because it's a Ladybird book, we also adored finding the little ladybird on each page.
This New Shoes board book is a real winner that we could easily recommend!
4 / 5 Stars!
