KIRKUS REVIEW

A very simple concept book describing eight different sounds a little girl's feet make in different footgear and places--""swoosh"" in dead leaves, ""squeak"" in new party shoes that can also ""thump"" up the stairs to her bath, where bare feet go ""kersplash!"" In the unpretentious but appealing illustrations, realistically rendered in soft pencil and watercolor, the child is shown going about a day's activities in the company of a cute golden retriever pup; boots, shoes, and slippers decorate margins and endpapers. On heavy, sturdy paper, this is a satisfying combination of two toddler enthusiasms: shoes and noise.
