Those Shoes
by Maribeth Boelts

Jeremy wanted some really cool new shoes that he couldn't have. His grandma just didn't have any money to spend on shoes. They NEEDED other things. Jeremy was sad. Then, at the thrift shop, he saw a pair of the perfect, cool shoes. They were just the right price that he could pay himself, but they were too small. What do you think Jeremy should have done? Should he buy the shoes and be cool, or he should he learn to be satisfied with the dorky shoes his counselor gave him? How would his surprising decision help a friend and help him the most?

Those Shoes by Maribeth Boelts helps to clarify the difference between NEEDS and WANTS and to help the reader understand that what one HAS is worth more than the things that one WANTS. African-American readers can see themselves in this realistic story of a child who overcomes poverty.
