Two-time Caldecott Medalist and New York Times–bestselling picture book creator Chris Raschka pays tribute to one of the most epic, fraught, and quintessential events in childhood—getting new shoes. With a simple, child-friendly text and bold illustrations, this is an inspiring and comforting choice for the youngest reader.

When a young child discovers a hole in a sneaker, mother and child embark on a big childhood milestone—a trip to the shoe store to pick out a new pair of shoes. Caldecott Medalist and New York Times–bestselling picture book creator Chris Raschka depicts this important childhood experience with soft edges and warm tones—putting on the old shoes at home, having feet measured, making a selection, and finally showing off the new shoes to a friend. This wonderfully age-appropriate picture book presents an important childhood event with respect, excitement, and page-turning energy. New Shoes is a preschool classic from one of the most honored author/artists in the field.
