Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 3-An enjoyable, gentle story about making friends and overcoming fears. Emma is a painfully shy child who likes to read, but not out loud or in front of her class. After some nudging by her parents, she goes next door and introduces herself to her new neighbor, Sally. Emma comes up with the idea that their winter boots (they have identical pairs) are magical, and it almost seems that they are. Thanks to the boots, both girls overcome their awkwardness and become good friends. Many children will identify with these familiar childhood situations. The idea of magic boots will surely inspire some wintertime adventures. The easy-to-read text and bright, lively watercolor illustrations work together in perfect harmony. A magical selection in any season.-Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
