Product description

Review

Boelts blends themes of teasing, embarrassment and disappointment with kindness and generosity in a realistic interracial school scenario.
--Kirkus Reviews

Maribeth Boelts has a good eye for how the shoes bestow value at school and how Jeremy feels wearing an uncool pair. Much to discuss, especially in the ending.
--Chicago Tribune

Whether children are on the shoe-owning or the shoe-envying side of the economic line, they can sympathize with Jeremy and rejoice in the way he eventually resolves his problem with his too-small shoes.
--The Horn Book

Jones' autumn-toned illustrations wonderfully complement Boelts' sweet-natured main characters and non-didactic life lesson.
--Booklist

A wonderful story of sharing, this important book conveys what is most important in life.
--Kendal Rautzhan's "Books to Borrow, Books to Buy" column

A touching story about how a life short on money can be big on love, good values, and friendship.
--Young Children

Maribeth Boelts introduces young readers to [a] complex issue with kindness and finesse.
--Grand Rapids Press

In this witty, wise picture book Boelts presents a kids-eye view of a consumer fad that rages through school at gale force.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

A poignant, thought-provoking book.
--School Library Journal

A contemporary urban story that shows the spirit of sharing with economy of language and superior craftsmanship.
--Contra Costa Times

Peer pressure, overwhelming desire, and the acceptance of what is really needed are played out in this story that is duplicated in schools around the country.
--Library Media Connection
