Acerca de


What can you do with a shoe? You can put it on your ear or wear it on your head or butter it like bread or use apple jam instead! What can you do with a hat? You can fill it up with pickles or with popcorn or with glue. An octopus could rest in it, a bird could build a nest in it, a turtle be a guest in it. Or would a horse look best in it? These are samples of the questions and wonderfully silly, laugh-provoking answers in a game played by a little girl and boy dressed up i their parents clothes.
On every page of this whimsically playful book, there are enchanting watercolor illustrations by Maurice Sendak. Inspired by the infectiously funny pictures and text, children will soon begin to make rhymes of their own about everyday things. Richly imaginative and wholly in tune with children's high spirits and sense of play, What can you do with a show?, now issued in a new edition with full-color paintings, will be welcomed by young and old. It is a treasure.


What can you do with a shoe? If you can't come up with anything besides "put it on your foot," it's time to expand your horizons. In What Can You do with a Shoe, author and Caldecott medalist Beatrice Schenk de Regniers promotes a wide range of creative options for footwear, from putting a shoe on your ear to wearing it on your head to buttering it like bread or using apple jam instead. The same innovative approach to repurposing is applied to a chair, a hat, a cup, a broom, and a bed. Each time, a pageant of wacky possibilities is explored in rhyme, followed by an acquiescent nod to the traditional function of the object in question. Children and adults alike will love the anarchist thrill of ideas, from filling a hat with pickles to using a broom as a bear brush.

Here, it is the pictures that make the book, as the illustrious Maurice Sendak displays his talent for delightful drawings once again. This edition is the first to include full-color paintings, which make the whimsical illustrations of a boy and girl playing dress-up even more lively and endearing, and the perfect accompaniment to a celebration of endless imagination and possibility. (Ages 2 to 7)
