Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Written with delicate simplicity, Marti's captivating poem, masterfully illustrated by Delacre, is a classic of children's literature.
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4. Without hesitation, a privileged little girl hands over her beloved pink shoes to a poor, sick child she meets at the beach. For one moment the youngsters' different worlds meet and mesh, each one's fantasy becoming the other's reality. This unique picture book has appealing illustrations and a sweet story that packs a strong social message. Marti's poem depicts a world of contrasting images: wealth and poverty, sickness and health, joy and misery. The distinguished watercolor artwork done in hues of yellow, pink, and blue re-creates the warm and sunny ambience of the seashore and highlights the innocence of the children. The lyrical, rhyming text makes this title a fine choice for reading aloud. It may also be used to spark a discussion of moral issues or social values, such as compassion and equality, as well as to introduce poetry and/or the life and work of the Cuban poet and historian.?Marisa Parish, New York Public Library

My favorite aunt, Aunt Martha entertained me as a toddler with this poem for the four short years I knew her. It was not until I stumbled across it at the age of 20 while doing research in college that I remembered how I loved this poem. This book allows me to beautifully share this poem with my child, the first member of my family born outside of Cuba or Spain. I am thrilled to have found it in a form a child will readily enjoy - great illustrations, I hope my daughter will grow to enjoy the beauty of the poetry through the years.

Este es el libro clasico mas bello para ninos. Era mi poema preferido cuando era nina. Ahora se lo leo a mi hija y todavia se me aguan los ojos al leerlo. Trasmite una gran ensenanza y sensibilidad. Ensena al nino a ayudar al projimo y a los mas necesitados. Lo recomiendo!

I love the story but the kindle ebook version only has the text. It does not include the cover, title page, or copyright page. Please redo this ebook and include these pages. My ebook is incomplete.

This is probably one of the best poems ever written in Spanish. Its author, Jose Marti dedicated it for children in his original "La Edad de Oro" book. I recommend this new book with his poem "Los Zapaticos de Rosa". It teaches a great life lesson to children, to share and value the things we have, and to understand that there are others kids less fortunate.

Hermoso cuento en versos. Una historia de bondad, caridad, empatía y buen corazón en torno a la diferencia de clase.

Me recordó mi niñez. Es algo que te hace pensar y valorar lo que tienes. Que lo mas importante es la vida de quienes quieres.

Is an easy read for children and adults. It may be a useful tool for language teaching and comparison with literature form that time and current. It is a classic. Simple and clean style, shows the innocence and genuinity of childhood.
