Bronte’s not too big for her boots.

In fact, Bronte’s boots fit just right. Perfect for adventure. Perfect for time with family, and time with friends and running and jumping and learning and working and playing. Perfect for just being Bronte.

Written in amazing verse, this is an uplifting book that celebrates life, and an adventurous love of life, through the eyes of a care-free and endearing child named Bronte.

Ah, to be young again and so full of life. This book took me back to my childhood and my first pair of Adidas sneakers (they were black with bright green stripes). I remember feeling a super confidence that I could run faster and jump higher. I remember feeling invincible. And, so it is for Bronte and many kids who’ll read and enjoy this book in anticipation of creating their own adventures. Thank you Bronte!
