Big Sarah's Little Boots was one of my favorite childhood stories and to find one in such great condition was so wonderful. I have looked for this book for years and will treasure it for many years to come. The story is wonderful and the illustrations are beautiful. I can't wait to share it with my children in the future.

Sarah's old boots make a special sound and the fit just right. But then one day they have shrunk and no amount of stretching by filling them with rocks and other means will ever make them fit her again. When they go to the store to buy a new pair of boots the only ones they have are yellow with a fire engine red stripe and Sarah will never like them! They are taken home. She gives her favorite boots to her brother and he loves them because they fit him perfectly. After it's rained again Sarah's family pulls on their boots. And when they play in the puddles Sarah's new boots make a different sound, but she doesn't mind after a while because they are just as much fun as the old ones and now she is enjoying the puddles with her brother.

The Pictures are well done because they cause you to be drawn into the story and feel exactly how Sarah felt thru the detailed expressions on her face and the characters used to compliment her.

Opinion: Most well done childrens books (at least in my experience) become memories when children grow up, thru the illustrator's pictures, if they're done well. And then the story is remembered thru that art not usually the other way around, in ages about 1-8 or so, then as they start to get into books that are more grown up they create their own pictures thru imagination so illustrations aren't as important in older childrens books.

My son received this book for Christmas, and we both loved it. The story line is really cute, and the pictures in it are great! I'd recommend this book to anyone with small kids.

This adorable story is about a little girl who outgrows her rainboots and gives them to her little brother. She is resentful at first that her little brother gets to enjoy her boots when she no longer can. When she sees how happy he is with them, she soon joins in on the fun. My older sister and I loved this book growing up, and I just got it for her for christmas for old times' sake.
