 For each day of the week, a different child describes the shoes he or she wears (tie or tap, old or new): ``On Saturday I wore sun shoes/Just for fun shoes/Tiptoe in the sand shoes....'' But Sunday's shoes are the best: `` shoes/Naked feet and toe shoes/Barefoot all day long shoes/Sing a summer song shoes....'' Ransome matches the effervescent verse with light, bright paintings of kids cheerfully engaged in imaginative activities. Just the thing to instigate dramatic play. (Picture book. 4-7)
