"BUTTERFLY SHOES", All who watch embrace the view of fluttering wings on butterfly shoes!
The creators, Joyce Fishman and Brenda Finne are sisters who have overlapped their keen sense of design and wordsmith since they were kids.

Breeze's Review:
This is a fun book to read. You can read one story at a time or sit down and read of all the stories at once. My little girl, who is obsessed with shoes, truly enjoyed hearing me read this book to her. The wording is fun and creative. It's was a very original idea, and as a parent, I’m always looking for books that are different. The illustrations match the story perfectly. They are unique and greatly enhanced the story. The last story about butterfly shoes was my daughter’s favorite. I was happy to add this to my collection!
