One Two That's My Shoe! by Alison Murray - ESSENTIAL

Murray, Alison.  One Two That’s My Shoe!  Disney Hyperion, 2011.  16.99.  PICTURE BOOK.  Author/illustrator Alison Murrary has taken the popular nursery rhyme “one-two buckle my shoe” and made into something new and fun.  It’s both a counting book and charming story.  A little girl’s dog takes one of her two red shoes and  after passing three teddy  bears and four blocks, heads out the door.  The chase continues all the way to the number ten and ends when the little girl gets her shoe back and she and her doggie are “friends again.”  Murray has chosen blues and greens for her main pallet with red accents (including the shoes).  A short and enjoyable read aloud story sure to be a hit with preschoolers.  Pre-K—ESSENTIAL.  Samantha Hastings, MA, MLS.
