What a sweet, sweet book! This book touched my heart and made me feel things. I love when books do that to me.
Phoebe longs to give her daughters new shoes. The girls are ridiculed and hurt by other children because they wear big, heavy boots everywhere. All the time. One of the worst feelings, I think, as a mother is to know your children are hurting. When your children hurt, you hurt. But, just like most mothers, Phoebe is resourceful and creative and she devises a plan to work and get new shoes for her girls. It's touching and powerful. As a mother and a daughter, I connected with the emotion in this book. Love is a powerful tool that can change lives.
This sweet story is less than 100 pages. It reads quickly and is the perfect little Christmas story. This will definitely set your heart in the right place leading up to Christmas.
My thanks to Cedar Fort for allowing me to read and review for them.
