Rev-up a child's imagination!

Just wait until kids discover these orange and pink shoes with ridiculous green ties! That's when the fun begins. Then they discover the "SOMETHING" and their own ideas start moving out of the box.

This is a delightful and imaginative story that has kids giggling and enjoying every word.

I've heard that when children leave a presentation of this story by Phyllis Karow-Trella, they enthusiastically travel down the school hallways saying, "Shoe-plop, shoe-lop, shoe-ploppity, loppity, lop" and enjoying every step!

"The wonderment of children as they grow and try to figure out the world and how it works shines through this delightful book by Phyllis Karow-Trella. As a pediatrician, I have tried to encourage parents to allow their children free thoughts and movement no matter where it may lead them. Creativity is the key word here.

We need to let the expressions of love, fear, wonder, and awe come out of their minds so they can see that their feelings help them cope with the big and sometimes scary world. Phyllis does this with her poetry. The child can relate to these poems. It is easy and fun.

This poetry is for adults, too. It will allow some buried feelings and thoughts come to the surface so that parents, especially, can relate to what is going on in the minds of their children. Karow-Trella has put children's thoughts into words and the results are simple and beautiful."
