Review & giveaway: Shoe-la-la by Karen Beaumont

It's definitely boot season, considering the cold and snow covering most of the country. That is, of course, unless you're Emily, Ashley, Kaitlyn, and Claire, the protagonists of Karen Beaumont's picture book, Shoe-la-la, enchantingly illustrated by LeUyen Pham.

In Shoe-la-la, the fancy foursome searches for the perfect shoes to match their party dresses. They exhaust every single option -- as well as the befuddled "Shoe-la-la" salesman -- before settling on unique and creative selections befitting the unique and creative style of each of the primping partygoers.

Shoe-la-la is a fun and fancy-filled tale shoe-loving gals of all ages will appreciate. Take a look:

GIVEAWAY: Scholastic Press, publisher, provided not only the free copy of Shoe-la-la for me to review, but two free copies for me to give away to readers of Grandma's Briefs. All you have to do to enter the drawing is answer the following question:

When it comes to shoe shopping, do you select shoe because of how comfortable they are or do you select them because of how fashionable they are?

Entries accepted until midnight MST January 13 and the two winners will be announced Friday, January 14.
