Book Review: Daisy and the Three Shoes by Evelyn Rainey

For Daisy, there are three kinds of shoes.
The good kind – because her girl wears them when they go for walks.
The bad kind – because her girl wears them when she leaves Daisy.
And the very best kind – the ones with wheels!

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What a cute children’s book! Daisy is all about her girl’s shoes. She knows which shoes she wears for walks and which shoes she wears when she leaves the house. Then there are the shoes with wheels. They are Daisy’s favorite, but after reading about the shoes with wheels, I don’t think they’re her girl’s favorite!

The illustrations by Susan Krupp are great. They’re bright and colorful and well done. I especially liked the ones of Daisy, and I’m sure kids will too.

Although this is advertised for second, third, and fourth grade readers, I believe older readers will enjoy it as well. And I’m going to read it to my grandsons who are both younger and can’t read yet but they’ll love the illustrations!
