WillieWiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins allover the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoesthat have been made for him that will help him to walk just like allthe other kids. Willie thinks that they are the “stupidest,ugliest shoes in the whole world.” Discover how sometimes weworry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing toworry about in the first place.
Iam fortunate with my daughters school uniform policy. The kids dressthe same and there are often times no teasing due to the clothes thatare worn. But, I have found that my daughter is very picky about howher hair looks because she does not want to be made fun of from herclassmates.
SlipperyWillie is about a boy who thinks that he will be laughed at becauseof a pair of shoes his Mother is going to make him wear. I love howLarry Peterson was able to capture the overly dramatic thoughts of achild and bring them to life in this adorable book. I found SlipperyWillie to be funny and interesting all at the same time! My daughterand I really enjoyed reading this book together and we were then ableto talk about what we should do in a situation where you are beingmade fun of or what she should do if she see’s someone else beingteased.
Atthe end of the book the Author has come ups with neat littleinteractive ideas that you can do with your child. For example havingthem wear something ‘ugly’ to school to see what the kids reallythink about that item or even volunteering at a local hospital to seethe kids that might be ‘different’. I love the interactive thoughtsat the back of the book and it was wonderful to have a book open upthe discussions that were opened up after reading Slippery Willie!
