really liked it
bookshelves: recycling, shoes, picturebooks
Read in January, 2010

A story told from the point of view of a pair of red sneakers shares its travels from a pair of feet in the United States to many other pairs of feet in Africa. Yes, in the back there is a letter from Soles4Souls about how they take and share footwear around the world, but I don't think that's a bad thing. It does not read like a campaign for the company, but rather as an educational tale. The focus of the book is to explain to young and old alike how we are a global community and sharing something – recylcling - can not only help the planet, but also our brothers and sisters the world over. It’s made me think, I have a heck of a lot of shoes I could probably pass on.

Charlotte Blessing I am the author. I am in fact not associated with Sole4Souls. This was an afterword the publisher organized. I simply wanted to tell a story about sharing and provide a window into a different part of the world.
