This story is about Alfie putting on his yellow rain boot, but they seem not to fit. He realizes they are on the wrong feet. This is a great story that children can relate to and help them understand the difference between the right and left foot. Read full review

This story would be great for a kindergarten or pre-k class. Alfie's has yellow boots and he wants to splish and splash in the water puddles outside. Soon Alfie's realizes they are on the wrong foot. This book also talks about knowing your left from your right. Cute book! Read full review
