When her best friend finds a pair of silver shoes, Molly is a bit jealous.
"Can I wear your silver shoes, Gran?" Molly always asked. Clickety-clakety went the heels as Molly danced. She felt just like a grown-up lady.
Molly finds a pair of shoes just like her grandmother has and wears them from morning to night. When she asks her father for a pair of her own shoes, he tells her:
"Special things you want very much often come at special times."
This almost made me cry, since my own father secretly bought me a bike one time and hid it for me until my birthday. I had NO idea, except I did wonder what the special tape was for. He decorated the bike for me to make it extra special. The only thing I missed was him walking me to school.
Molly is equally excited when she gets her gift of silver shoes and then she feels like a real dancer. A cute story with a happy ending.
I doubt there is a little girl who won't relate to the story. The expressions on the children's faces are so real!
