As a mom who loves fashionable shoes with two little girls (ages 4 and 5) who love to raid my closet and try on those said shoes, I came across a delightful book which we read this evening. It’s called Birdie’s Big Girl Shoes. It’s a charming tale of a little girl named Birdie who can’t wait to be just like her mom. I can relate to this since the other day my five year old started talking in a funny, adult way with an almost affected tone. I asked her what she was doing and she said that, “she wanted to be just like me”. As mom’s we have these moments, which are such fun! It’s a delightful tale of a little girl wanting to be a fashionable grown up and since many of my readers are fashionable and have either neices, little sisters or daughters of their own…I figured I would post about the book here on the blog.
It’s no wonder I liked the book, because the author and illustrator is Sujean Rim. She is the illustrator behind the popular DailyCandy website and is known for her signature watercolor art style. Originally a shoe and accessory designer, Sujean has been commissioned for her illustrations by clients such as Tiffany & Co, Barneys and Target. She’s designed numerous book covers and has illustrated two books by the editors of DailyCandy.
Great Birthday Gift Idea: Pair this book with a fun pair of Toddler Girls Glitter Ballet Flats from Target ($12) and you’ve got a fabulous party gift for under $25!
