I hoped 'In Another Color's Shoes' would be a fun book while also showing that everyone should take the time to get to really know the people around them.

In Another Color's Shoes by author and illustrator Regina Puckett is a short children's picture book that comes with a very large message attached to it; acceptance and enjoying the differences that each person has. The tone is very easy to read and friendly. The words are simple and most children will be able to understand the meaning of them. Within the pages are illustrations that are colorful and playful, and bring to mind a claymation style of design that will grab a child's attention and keep it.
Regina Puckett got down to the heart of me with In Another Color’s Shoes. Don't let its few pages fool you; this book has so much to say about what we all want deep down, and that’s to be loved and accepted for who we are, for all our faults and imperfections that make each one of us perfect. I feel that there need to be more messages of this kind in children’s books, so that we can teach our children to be loving people, and a friend to everyone. This is definitely a book that you will want your little one to read, or one that you will want to read to your child at bedtime. I feel that there are too many books out there that try to dumb down our future leaders of America and this book is sorely needed in this day and age. It is a book that I dare say, as adults, we need as a reminder of how important it is to be accepting, and how truly life changing it can be.
