    One thought on “The Elves And The Shoemaker”

    1. This is a cute book for young children. It's about a shoemaker who is old and is tired of making shoes but needs to to support his wife and him. Every morning he wakes up and a new pair of shoes are on his table which creates interest among the public.

    2. This was a cute and short tale, it was predictable but it would be a good book for young children, they would enjoy it.

    3. The book starts off talking about the shoemaker being poor and how they are worried about money then it shoots to the positive. This book shows how even when your down you will always be up again you just have to believe in yourself and look for help when needed. I read this book when I was little and was obsessed with it because it was like magic how the shoes appeared. The story has a very happy fairy tale but real life situation involved. This would be a good book to read and maybe talk about [...]

    4. There is nothing particularly inventive about the story, writing or illustrations in this classic picture book, but after coming back to it twenty+ years after first reading this book, I am still charmed by the elderly couple and the helpful elves who work together to make shoes. It's lovely and a book I'm happy to share with Lu.

    5. I have always liked this magical little story. In this well-written edition, I especially love the illustrations of the clothes the shoemaker's wife makes for the little elves, as well as the fashions everyone else wears. It's a charming book.

    6. I was so excited to find this in my library. It's the exact one I had as a child, and the nostalgia alone made it an invaluable experience. It's interesting to see how illustrations and color saturation in picture books have evolved over the past few decades.

    7. I'm looking for the "perfect" retelling of this story. This one will do for now, but I'm still looking for a version that will capture my heart.
