Our Thoughts on Josie’s Bedazzled Shoes
Josie’s Bedazzled Shoes is perfect for first day of school jitters. This book came right on time for Jordyn! She instantly was able to relate to this book because she was going through the exact same thing at that very moment. Jordyn was able to completely understand how Josie felt and she was very happy for her when she got up the courage to make new friends. The illustrations were super cute. She fell in love with Josie’s bedazzled shoes and even wished she had a pair just like them.
Josie feels how most kids feel as I was once that kid. I could relate to the story as well. This is a great book for parents to read with their child. It will definitely help start a discussion about being confident and just being yourself. I just love this quote from the bookSometimes when we want something to change, we have to be willing to change a bit ourselves. #JosiesBedazzledShoes Click To Tweet
