Red Shoes follows a pair of red shoes from the original owner, a little girl in the United States, to a little girl in West Africa. It’s a gift from her aunt as a reward for fasting every other day during the month of Ramadan. (Children are often introduced to the fast of Ramadan in this very voluntary way.) --Karen English
Malika is delighted when Nana surprises her with a beautiful new pair of red shoes! And with a click-clack-click and a swish, swish, swish, Malika wears her wonderful new shoes everywhere she goes. But one day, the shoes begin to pinch Malika's toes. And alas, they don't let her forget that her feet have grown! Soon Malika and Nana are off to the Rare Finds Resale Shop, where the shoes can be resold -- so another little girl can enjoy them! --Publisher
