Mommy's High Heeled Shoes
written by Krisie Finnan, illustrated by alumnae Pat Achilles ’81. Signed first edition by both the author and the illustrator!
Mommy’s High Heel Shoes is a story about a little girl nicknamed “Cakes” (because of her LOVE of cupcakes!) After Mommy leaves for work, Cakes plays in Mommy’s closet with her brother and imagines she is Mommy! While Cakes is trying on Mommy’s shoes, her brother is being a typical little boy, playing with his toy penguin and making trains/building forts out of Mom’s shoes. Cakes discovers that Mommy wears so many different shoes because Mommy has lots of jobs. This story explores the subject of why mothers work outside the home and the many important jobs mommies have inside the home as well. This book truly celebrates a busy working mommy and her sweeter than cupcakes relationship with her children!
