I want a blueberry shoe!

(BLUEBERRY SHOE by Ann Dixon with vibrant illustrations by Evon Zerbetz is a children's picture book set in Alaska. Appropriate for ages 1-9)

I found this book at the bookstore when my mom was meeting with readers. I like the colors on the cover.

A baby loses his shoe when he was picking blueberries with his momma and dadda. They leave the baby's shoe on the mountain and go home without it! A lot of animals try to eat the shoe. It's funny. But each animal loses the shoe. When the snow melts and momma and dadda come pick blueberries again, the baby finds his shoe, with a blueberry plant growing inside!

I didn't understand a lot of the words, so I asked my mom to make up a different story to go with the pictures. I was really worried about the shoe and was sad the momma and dadda left it on the mountain all winter. I was happy they found it and brought it home.

My favorite part of this book is the pictures and knowing the shoe is now okay.

I love the pictures but when I had to pick a book to give to my best friend for his birthday, I chose a different book with llamas. I want to read this book again and again, but it's not my favorite picture book. I give this book 4 stars. ( )
