A Dog Wearing Shoes by Sangmi Ko

I found A Dog Wearing Shoes by Sangmi Ko at our school book fair a few weeks ago. Published in 2015, this adorable book has pictures in black and white with the exceptions being the dog's bright yellow shoes and red leash.

Goodreads blurb: When Mini finds a small moppet of a dog, with fluffy ears, no collar, and wearing yellow booties, she understandably wants to take it home. Despite Mom's insistence that the dog probably already has a family, Mini gets attached and is awfully proud of her new pal, who can sing, sit, and give both paws. But when the pup runs off one day at the park, Mini comes to understand how someone else out there might be missing the little guy too.

This book is rated at over 4 stars on, and I agree with that rating. This is a delightful story with charming illustrations.

This story shows the joy that dogs bring into our lives. The last page of the book tells how to adopt a dog from a shelter and gives websites for finding the perfect pet.

Cayli, from Nightchayde - a fashion blog, brought over two board books for the NICU book project.

Thanks, Cayli. She is my daughter-in-law and has more style in her little pinkie than I will ever possess.

If you'd like to contribute to our book drive for NICU babies, here is how you can help:

1. You can order books for your own children from our online Usborne book party and the proceeds will go to purchase books for the NICU. I've received over $350.00 in free books for the NICU from people buying books for their own families through this web link. Usborne is really good to their hostesses, and they have great board books for babies. Click on the link: Usborne book sale to benefit NICU The books you order will be shipped directly to your home. You can then give them to your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews. The free books from the hostess benefits go to the NICU. Books make a great addition to your child's Easter basket. 

2. We have set up a baby registry at with many books listed for the NICU babies. Some of these books only cost 2.50. Many of these are classics that all children should have. Click on this link if you'd like to help provide books for the NICU: Catherine Crosby Building Lifelong Readers Book Registry. If you order books for us, they will be shipped to me, and I will package and send them to the NICU. 

Our NICU was recently in the news when a mother delivered a set of quadruplets. Quads born at McKay-Dee Hospital

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
