Kicks in the Sky
Pura Belprè and Coretta Scott King Honor winner C. G. Esperanza presents a stunning, rhythmic picture book about kids discovering that the shoes hanging from telephone wires can give them magical abilities.
Red kicks, green kicks, yellow kicks, blue!
Colorful, psychedelic sneakers hang from telephones wires all over the city. Up in the sky, they hang for all to marvel and see.
