New Shoes for Silvia
$ 7.99 $ 2.99
by Johanna Hurwitz; illustrated by Jerry Pinkney
Silvia can't wait to try on her present from Tia Rosita: new shoes as red as the inside of a watermelon. The shoes are too big for Silvia to wear -- but that doesn't stop her from thinking of lots of ways to enjoy them while she waits for her feet to grow!
"The excitement of the new shoes and the formidable task of waiting to grow into them are both conveyed beautifully through the story and the art....Watercolors fill each page with the details of life in Silvia's home and small village....Hurwitz perfectly captures the pleasure of a special gifted the difficulty of waiting."--Horn Book
