Those Shoes

 

Those Shoes

Author: Maribeth Boelts

Illustrator: Norah Z. Jones

All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. But Jeremy’s grandma tells him they don’t have room for “want,” just “need,” and what Jeremy needs are new boots for winter. When Jeremy’s shoes fall apart at school, and the guidance counselor gives him a hand-me-down pair, the boy is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet aren’t much fun, and Jeremy comes to realize that the things he has — warm boots, a loving grandma, and the chance to help a friend — are worth more than the things he wants.

Todo lo que Jeremy quiere es un par de esos zapatos, como los que llevan puestos los otros chicos de su escuela. Pero su abuela le explica que ellos no están para hablar de «quiero», sino de «necesito», y lo que Jeremy necesita son unas botas nuevas para el invierno.
 En esta historia, tierna y real, de Maribeth Boelts, ilustrada por Noah Z. Jones, un niño comprende que las cosas que él tiene —unas botas abrigadas, una abuela que lo quiere y un buen amigo— son mucho más importantes que las cosas que él quiere.
