Booklist Review

Gr. 1, younger for reading aloud. When her mother calls, "Emily, it's time," Emily wonders what it's time for. As she considers the possibilities--a party, soccer, ballet, a sleepover, ice skating, hiking--Emily imagines putting on the footwear for each activity. Lighthearted ink drawings washed with pale watercolors create an upbeat mood for Emily's guessing game. The short, simple text appears only on alternate spreads, with wordless illustrations in between showing Emily's imagined activities. A good book for beginning readers or for reading to the many toddlers and preschoolers who are fascinated by footwear. Ironically, no shoes are needed for the activity that started Emily's musings--bathtime. --Carolyn Phelan
