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.

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
