Polka-dot boots!

In this light-hearted, spunky new book, children can “dress” a cheerful group of children with a mere turn of the page. But no matter what they’re wearing, they’ll find that all of the youngsters have on their favorite polka dot boots with every outfit, in every activity.  

 Ellen Olson-Brown knows good rhythm as well as she knows kids—especially the polka-dot-boot-wearing variety—and Christiane Engel’s colorful illustrations create cheerful and fun characters that every child will want to emulate.  

 Ooh La La Polka-Dot Boots will have young readers scrambling to find their favorite polka-dot-boots and matching them with their favorite outfits!
