Modern Moms Wear All Kinds Of Shoes. The lives of working mothers have caused certain metaphors, not to mention cliches work overtime: we wear a variety of hats; we juggle to keep numerous balls in the air; we wage battles at home and at work you can surely supply others. That's what Kristie Finnan has done in her new book, Mommy s High Heel Shoes. Spinning off the familiar image of young children clopping clumsily around in their mothers shoes, Finnan has fashioned a way to explore the various shoes mothers wear as they walk the various paths of their lives. Thus, after her mother leaves for work wearing high heels, a little girl rather cloyingly nicknamed Cakes (because she likes cupcakes) explores her mother's closet......In addition, this one features charming illustrations by Pat Achilles's. Though for some unexplained reason a tiny ladybug hides on each page, this adds a sweet interactive component to the text. See mommytracked.com for full and complete review by Jo Keroes. Mommy Track'd- the working mother's guide to managed chaos. --Mommy Tracked
This book was so much fun to read. The illustrations are beautiful and I loved how the author added a glimpse of mystery to each page by having you find a ladybug, heart, and cupcake. It was fun to read through the story then go back and find the hidden treasures in each illustration. This is a loved book by my family and I am sure your family will love to read it as well Heather B, for full review see Thedomesticdiva.org --The Domestic Diva --The Domestic Diva

Although the text doesn't mention him, Daddy is prominent in the pictures on the pages.
Otherwise a cute book, just not what I wanted
She loves it when I read the book out loud to her because I use my "woman's" voice for the mom parts. Something every dad should do. My kids expect me to be silly when reading which creates a bond with them that I love and this book really allows that to happen.
As for the book, One day my daughter and her friend, after reading Mommy's High Heel Shoes, went into every closet in the house and made up stories about each pair of shoes and when finished they wanted cupcakes. To me this is proof that a book is good because it engaged her and her friend after reading it to continue playing from what they learned in the story.
The book moves at a fast pace and the illustrations have a great vintage feel while sill being contemporary. The message is clear that parents (especially moms) need to work but most of all their favorite job is taking care of their kids. It's a great book with a great message that anyone will like.
There are not enough books out there to help a working Mom or Dad! Thanks and Write more!
