Can You Find My Shoe? is a bright and colorful adventure book for young readers, penned by author Patty Lennox and illustrated by artist Harry Aveira. Designed for readers aged 3 to 7 years to read along with their parents, the vivid setting for the story takes place in a zoo, where pairs of rhyming couplets take us through the journey of a young boy looking for his lost shoe. The zookeeper and the animals help him to seek it out, but the illustrations leave plenty of room for young readers to look for the shoe too on each double-page spread.
Author Patty Lennox and artist Harry Aveira come together beautifully in this masterpiece of children’s reading. It’s a simple story with simple elements, but the general plot encourages children to be observant rather than passive when engaging with each page, and the excellent rhyme scheme and use of vocabulary teach plenty of relevant and useful words for their literacy. Aveira’s cartoony but digitally enhanced style looks modern and exciting for kids from the Pixar age and beyond, and every figure, be they animal or human, has plenty of character and expression to read into. The rhymes are never too repetitive, and the rhythm is well expressed to help children pick up the grammar, and also enjoy the story again and again for its comforting and happy beat. Overall, Can You Find My Shoe? is a super, well-formatted and highly engaging picture storybook that will have a beloved place on every child’s nightstand.
