Her Shoes Sing

I recently illustrated a mini-book for Highlights, a poem called "My Shoes Sing," by Joy Acey. What a fun project! A dream for me: twelve images featuring this adorable little girl, as she wears her favorite shoes throughout every season. The book (which you cut out and staple yourself) is at the very end of the January issue of Highlights High Five. Art Direction excellently provided by Kelley Cunningham.

Joy, your poem is wonderful! So glad it brought us together. In answer to your question, although I didn't actually think of a name for the little girl, she is based on a very special "petite belle," a Darling I used to know.
