Title: Shoes…Are You My Mate
Author: Jennifer Moran and Camille Brown
About the Book:
The joyous story of a hot-shot soccer shoe named Lefty who feels compelled to search for his real mate — leaving his old mate, Dex, behind. On a daring journey filled with courage and laughter, he learns the true meaning of friendship.
This is a picture book 18 pages long.
Also available in Spanish – Shoes… ¿Eres mi compañero?
This was a clever little story about friendship and cooperation. Lefty the soccer cleat is searching for his real mate. He mistakenly believes that friends and mates must always be in agreement about everything.
After a long and futile search, Lefty soon learns that friends don’t need to always think the same, and being friends (and good teammates) is often more important than always having your own way.
A good book for parents and children: stressing the importance of acceptance and understanding as well as compromise, as they learn that winning isn’t everything, or even always necessary.
I received an eBook from the authors for purpose of honest review for inclusion during Children Read week at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
