Susie's Shoes Go Missing is a book about a little girl named Susie, Pirate, her cat and the use of prepositions. Each morning, one of Susie's shoes disappears until she finds them with the help of her cat, Pirate. But who keeps hiding her shoes? Young readers will have fun learning prepositions by answering the "Where" questions throughout the book all while trying to solve the mystery of Susie's missing shoes. The prepositions are in bold print to help the reader focus on emphasizing them.
"Where Is Pirate" is a preposition practice page on the last page of the book. It teaches prepositions such as: under, over, in, out, in front of, beside....etc. Parents and teachers can touch the squares from left to right and ask, "Where is Pirate?" They can model the answer at the word level and then the phrase level such as: "in the box, behind the fence", until the child can say it by themselves. This practice page can be used frequently to improve a child's accuracy and speed by correctly using these commonly-used prepositions.
