Picture Book Review: Boo’s Shoes

Boo's Shoes - A Rabbit and Fox Story by Sybrina Durant

Boo’s Shoes – A Rabbit and Fox Story: Learn To Tie Shoelaces
by Sybrina Durant (Goodreads Author), Pumudi Gardiyawasam (Illustrator)

2 out of 5 stars

Boo is a little rabbit who doesn’t want to learn to tie his shoes. His friend the fox helps him to learn how to tie shoelaces, and encourages him to keep learning!

This book was just okay. The text is told in rhyme, and it’s not very well done. Sometimes the number of syllables in each line does not match like it should. Sometimes the words don’t even rhyme at all, or they are not very good rhymes. I don’t know why people insist on writing children’s books in rhyme when the story would be so much better in prose.

The story itself is cute and fun, and I liked the sweet characters. The best part of the book is the description of all of Boo’s different types of shoes. He has a lot of shoes without laces, even skates and boots and jumping shoes!

The artwork is nice and I liked the colorful design of each page. It has a nice polished look that you would expect from professional artwork. The bright colors are attractive, and the facial expressions of the characters are so cute!
