Misadventures of a Desperate Wish

Some wishes are not as good as we imagine them to be.


The lighthearted, humorous adventures of Stinky Shoes teach children a very important lesson: Not all wishes are good wishes. So, it is important to be careful what one wishes; these wishes might come true.  For example, Stinky Shoes dreams of getting out of the shoe store, because he is not happy there. Eventually, his wish becomes a reality, though not in the ways he imagines.

Author Debra J. Mines’ “Stinky Shoes” is a fantastic read-aloud book for children in grades pre-K through 3. Consisting of “Critical Thinking Learning Activities”, the book helps enhance young children’s reading comprehension skills.  It also provides enrichment for gifted primary grade students and enables middle and high-school students to better understand figurative language.

Know how Stinky Shoes learned his lesson, and engage yourself in critical thinking activities by reading Debra J. Mines’ “Stinky Shoes”—on display at the 2018 Frankfurt International Book Fair on October 10 – October 14, 2018, in Frankfurt, Germany.
