About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Shoes by Yvette Cragun: Blog Tour

Paperback32 pages
Published  Pink Umbrella Books LLC, January 20th 2020

About the Book:
Flip-flops for the beach, sassy flats for shopping or black heels for a night out on the town—Mom’s closet has the perfect pair of shoes for any occasion. Playing dress-up for a while can be fun, but at the end of the day, one little girl learns that she doesn’t need to be in a hurry to fill her mom’s shoes.


Ballet shoes. Tennis Shoes. Fancy high heels. When I first saw the different kinds of shoes that are shown in this book, I was taken back to the times that I wore my mother and grandmother's shoes and I also remembered when my daughter wore mine. Shoes that were much too big for our little feet but never too large for our dreams and our imagination!

This is a 32 page, softcover book and the bright, colorful illustrations and rhyming text make it fun to see and fun to read. Shoes is the perfect book for a little girl and it is an enjoyable book for "big girls" also. I am excited to share it with my six year-old granddaughter!

I was given a copy of this book but there was no obligation for a positive review. I am voluntarily sharing my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
