Shoes by Yvette Cragun, Myra Romano (Illustrator)

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.

I don't think there is a child out there who hasn't wanted to wear their parents shoes.  My kids sure did- all the time.  This book is about a young girl trying on her mother's shoes and imagining herself in different places with them on.  The words have great rhythm and rhyme.  The illustrations are bright and happy.  It's a great book to read aloud to young children.  Very cute!

About the Author:

Yvette Cragun is the third of nine children. Growing up in a big family meant life was always an adventure. Yvette started devouring books at a young age and still truly enjoys getting lost in fictitious worlds. She started writing stories in 2011 with encouragement from her husband, big sister and mother-in-law. Her six children are her inspiration and her greatest blessing.

About the Illustrator:

Myra Romano grew up reading all the books, drawing all the time, driving tractors, racing snowmobiles and drag racing her 1985 Chevy Citation. Her love and passion for art grew as she went on to the Columbus College of Art and Design and received her BFA in advertising and illustration. After graduating, she worked at a number of different dot-com companies including americangreetings.com. Working in the industry for 10 years, she received many acknowledgments and awards until making the decision to start a family. With her boys now almost grown, she has the opportunity to come back to her passions and has started a new chapter in her life, illustrating and writing children’s books and licensing her artwork.
