Layla is a little LoveBug with "fashionista" style who always wants everything to match. Today, however, that's a challenge as her family gets dressed to go to a special birthday party. MommyBug reminds her to wear the new party shoes which Layla already picked out for the celebration. But Layla is not so sure that those new party shoes will match the clothes she'll choose.
Frustration grows with each of Layla's imaginative attempts to convince MommyBug she's ready. Time begins to run out, along with her MommyBug's patience, when getting dressed becomes more like a game of dress-up, until Layla realizes that all the other LoveBugs are already on their way to the party. She pauses to think through her decision and with the help of her friend, Olivia, comes up with a 'party-perfect' choice. A comical twist at the end gives kids and grown-ups reason to giggle together over the cheery, quirky personalities of the LoveBugs.
"Party Shoes Gives Layla the Blues" is delightfully designed for book lovers of any age to engage and interact, while reciting the rhymes which repeat throughout. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist, Adam Turner, the vibrant, colorful pages, are sure to delight even your youngest audience.
