Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

But all the kids are wearing them Any child who has ever craved something out of reach will relate to this warm, refreshingly realistic story.

I have dreams about those shoes. Black high-tops. Two white stripes.

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.

"In this witty, wise picture book, Boelts presents a kids-eye view of a

consumer fad that rages through school at gale force." — Bulletin of the Center for Childrens Books (starred review)

All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. Though Jeremys grandma says they dont have room for "want," just "need," when his old shoes fall apart at school, he is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet arent much fun, and Jeremy soon sees 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.
