    1. Cleverly written with vibrant illustrations to match.Interestingly, I'm going through a phase where I'm feeling a bit self-conscious about myself and so this story is right up my alley. Children stories are as simple as they come but can impact you just the same as say a true account told by Victor Frankl (my favorite). Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes is just that: Simple, fun, cleverly exaggerated story with a clear message.The illustrations are clear and rich with color and emotion. My 6 [...]

    2. 2 important lessons are taught in the short picture book. It's not nice to make fun of others who are different and sometimes we worry too much what others will think.I admit about half way through I wasn't sure about this book. I was feeling pretty bad for poor Willie and wondering where the author was going with the story. It wrapped up in a way that made a great story to teach children about differences and how we treat others. This book would be useful in a classroom setting especially one w [...]

    3. Though certainly not words you usually hear in a children’s book (let alone the title…though they do grab your attention), “stupid” and “ugly” aren’t that far off track when describing his new footwear. Think of a pair of shoes you’ve had that you less-than-loved (me…at the time, black & white saddle shoes….oye….but oh how fun it was when they started coming in PINK and white!)…got the image? Now add on a lock or two attaching them to your feet…p, I’d say they pro [...]

    4. My ReviewWillie had a problem that no one, not even his Doctor could figure out what was wrong. His feet were so slippery his socks and shoes would not stay on his feet. So finally special shoes were ordered for Willie, and his feet would not be slippery while wearing them. I really felt sorry for Willie. He just did not want to wear those shoes, even if they did help him not to slip and slide. He didn’t want to go through the embarrassment of everyone at school and everyone he would be around [...]

    5. Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. They are so slippery that he just slips, slides, and spins all over the place. The only thing he hates worse than his slippery feet is his stupid, ugly shoes. He's certain everyone is going to laugh at him when they see them on his feet. He'll be the laughing-stock of the school; no, of his neighborhood. Even the animals will be laughing at him. There is no way he is wearing those stupid, ugly shoes. Get ready to laugh, because this is one silly story. Can [...]

    6. Willie isn't like the other kids. He has slippery feet! Everywhere he goes, he slips and slides all over the place. Even when he wear shoes, he still slips and slides. So one day, he gets a pair of shoes that will keep him from slipping and sliding. But they're so ugly! How can he ever wear them to school? Everyone will laugh!A first children's book by Larry Peterson, this story tackles the concept of accepting differences. The ending includes a list of ideas to open up discussion about this ver [...]

    7. Willie has slippery feet! He can't ride his bike or climb a tree. Even when he is just sitting at his desk, his socks and shoes slide off. He has really slippery feet! The doctors can't explain it either. Then his mom buys Willie some new shoes - shoes that he won't slip out of. Now he'll be able to ride his bike and climb a tree without slipping off. But when Willie goes to sleep the night before school, he has a terrible dream. He dreams that everyone laughs at his stupid ugly new shoes. His c [...]

    8. Willie is finding it difficult to walk and is always slipping. His mother got him some special shoes to help him walk better. But he doesn’t want to wear them afraid kids at school will laugh at him. The children at school laughed at him even his teacher and principal but it turned out to be a bad dream.Author Larry Peterson delivered a much needed educational subject about accepting each other differences and an excellent message for kids. Apart from the word Stupid used in this book (which I [...]

    9. To be upfront, I stopped reading this book half way through. My point of contention? The use of the word stupid. Not only does Slippery Willie use it but his teacher uses it to remark on his new shoes. The story, until then wasn’t bad and the illustrations were cute, I just couldn’t get past that word. I don’t want to read it to my kids and I don’t want my kids to read it and think it’s okay to use. I certainly don’t want them to think a teacher can call something of theirs as stupid [...]

    10. This is a great book for children, to help them with accepting ways in which they are different from others. And for helping them to accept others’ differences from the masses, too. The story is very cute, and I think many kids will be able to relate in some fashion – what kid hasn’t been nervous about being accepted by others? Heck, what adult hasn’t worried about that from time to time? After the story reaches a positive conclusion, there are activities kids can do, and discussion ques [...]

    11. Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson is just so adorable. I highly recommend this one to anyone that needs a fresh, new and cute story for their children. This one made me laugh out loud as I shared it with my six year old brother. We both enjoyed the book's eccentricity and illustrations. Children of any age could definitely enjoy this one and take away a little lesson too- that it is okay to be different.Your children will love this one, check it out!

    12. Willie has a problem. He slips and slides where ever he goes. He cannot do many activities that his friends and schoolmates can, because he risks bodily injury. To help with the problem, he has special shoes made for him. He is very unhappy about the solution because they are different looking shoes.Willie learns a special lesson in this book. Sometimes we think that things will be worse than they really are.
