Shoe Garden and Other Shoe Stories

Shoe Garden is the first title in “The Shoe Banter Collection” of books that celebrate the personality expressed by our shoes to spark the imagination children everywhere. (Think of those pretty princess shoes that girls everywhere want to wear to look like a Disney princess!)

  • Shoe Garden: How does your shoe garden grow? By two of course in colors of rainbows
  • Shoe Dreams: Each one tells a story, of its lifetime glory, each stand on its own, characters renown.
  • When Shoes Can Fly: Life's journey is meant to walk on the earth, but if my shoes could fly, I would soar so high!
  • Butterfly Shoes: All who watch embrace the view of fluttering wings on butterfly shoes! 
MY THOUGHTS: I really enjoyed this book. This is a fun book with rhyming sentences. It is simple and great for preschoolers/kindergarteners to read themselves as well. My little one and I had a little fun looking at the illustrations and he was able to name the different kinds of shoes (high heels, sandals, boots, runners, slippers, etc.).


    The creators, Joyce Fishman and Brenda Finne are sisters who have overlapped their keen sense of design and wordsmith since they were kids.

    Joyce’s work has practical application and esthetic sensibilities. Wearing varied hats in artistic industries have given her experience in education, design and retail. As a teacher and life learner, Joyce has acquired the ability to take inspiration and use divergent thinking to create a unique artistic harmony.

    Incorporating her experience as a choreographer and writer into tangible designs and storytelling has developed Brenda’s ability to see the poetry in human experience. Her strong work ethic has taught her that tangible results can be born from magic and dreams.

    The Shoe Banter Collection is a series of inquisitive shoe themed artwork.

    Think of shoes as more then soulless objects of fashion.

    Know that shoes contain a soul within it’s sole.
