Tennis Shoes is one of the wonderful 'Shoes collection of adventures for children by Noel Streatfeild. There is no doubt about it - the Heath children have tennis in their blood. Their grandfather and father before them had been top players, and the twins are champion material.
Four-time consecutive U.S. Junior tournament champ Ryoma Echizen comes to Seishun Academy to further his reign as The Prince of Tennis. His skill is matched only by his attitude - irking some but impressing all as he leads his team to the Nationals and beyond. The National Tournament moves into the quarterfinal stage, and the Seishun players find themselves pitted against their old rivals, Hyotei. Kicking things off is the No. 3 Singles match between Momoshiro and Hyotei's resident genius, Yushi Oshitari. Will all of Momo's strength and cunning be enough to defeat the 'Player of a Thousand Techniques'?
This book is about how happy it made a little girl when her mom bought her a pair of tap dancing shoes while on a shopping trip at the mall. It tells about some fun filled exciting experiences both boys and girls may have with a pair of tap dancing shoes. The illustrator used Chesley's original artwork ideas as well as his/her own in the illustrations. The last two illustrations in her book are of dancewear used in her first dance recital.
As Chesley's mother, I like this book because it allows children to see what they can do too by putting forth the effort to do their best whatever the task, and not take shortcuts or take the easy way out all the time, especially in their reading and writing at school. I hope it will give students the confidence to persevere in their goals/dreams no matter what others do or say or how difficult it may get at times. This is also a fun and exciting book.
Chesley wrote this story in class one day about something she enjoyed doing, taking tap dancing lessons.
