What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Rediscover acclaimed author Dashka Slater’s joyful picture book about a baby on the go–now in a padded book form! Baby loves his brand-new white shoes, taking them all over the neighborhood while his frantic mom chases behind him. But he just can’t resist stomping through puddles, squishing fallen plums, and dancing in fresh paint. It isn’t long before those white, high-jumping, fast-running shoes are speckled and spotted with every color of the rainbow. Dashka Slater’s delightful, rhythmic text and Hiroe Nakata’s sweet, jaunty illustrations are the perfect match for this playful tale of fun, sun, and fabulous shoes!
