Cathy Colborn's shoe collages are made from recycled magazines, maps, and findings to keep her artwork "green." The pictures have an Eric Carle feel to them, yet are something new. The author's poetry inspired by each set of shoes are found on the adjoining pages. The whole book follows a "coming of age" progression. Currently, "Recycled Working Shoes" is in progress and hopefully will be completed after the holidays. So get caught up on the first of this series. If you enjoyed Eric Carle's art as a child, you will love Recycled Shoes.
