Another nice review for SHOE

"This attractive children’s book is full of creative ideas for reusing old materials: make a stamp out of a flip-flop shoe, a planter pot out of an old red shoe, a small pillow out of an old t-shirt, use an old beloved blanket to make a handkerchief, and patch holes in a pair of worn pants. Colorful pictures created with acrylic paint illustrate simple instructions for these easy projects, although some recommend the assistance of an adult. The author encourages her readers to “share in the responsibility of taking care of our world” and suggests other ways that children and their families can reuse and recycle around their homes. A couple of 'hand-sewing tips' are provided: how to sew a 'whipstitch' and a 'running stitch'."
