Nice children's book, good message
on January 7, 2016
Really like the story and sentiments in this book, and am pleased it shows multi racial kids. I purchased this for a friend who just had a baby boy. She loves shoes and these type of ideas, so I thought it was fitting. She loves it. Story is about a boy who wants shoes everyone else had, but his grandmother can't afford those shoes and boots he needs. He finds them at a thrift store but they are too small and he has to wear donated shoes that are not age appropriate. Only one little boy, who can't afford the shoes either, does not make fun of him and he eventually gives them to that boy, as they have become friends. A good lesson on friendship, wants versus needs, and giving.
