Book Review: 'Slippery Willie'

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 7:38 AM
Slippery Willie Synopsis:
Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the "stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world."

Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.

My Review:

Slippery Willie shares a simple message that we all are different and that's OK because God made us that way. The book has some interesting points, but I felt a little awkward reading it to my seven year old grandson because everyone was making fun of Willie.
I understand the message of the book is to teach children everyone is different, but in my opinion I thought it could have been handled better.
I give Slippery Willie a B-.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
