Review | Running Shoes


amazon Goodreads
Anyone who loves to run knows the distinct exhilaration of taking on the outdoors with no other equipment than a good pair of running shoes. It’s a way of clearing the mental clutter, resolving tensions, and feeling fully awake and alive. With whimsical text and beautiful watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations-rich in color and imagery-Running Shoes not only conveys the cities, paths, trees, and roads that a runner encounters-it brings to life the feeling of what the runner encounters in their journey. This book reminds us what running and running shoes can bring to your life in a delightfully unique way.

Hott Review:

I thought Running Shoes was cute. I don’t care for the watercolor illustrations, but my daughter loves them. I do like the preface in this book, though, something about it just relaxes me and brings a smile to my face.
