Item Description...
A child's delight in a new pair of shoes is the same all over the world, whether the shoes are patent-leather sandals, straw alpargatas, deerskin moccasins, or wooden clogs.

For Mako, a little Japanese girl, the new shoes were clogs painted with red lacquer that shone beautifully. This is the story of what happened after she cracked the new clogs playing the weather-telling game and so longed for a bright, shiny new pair to replace them that she almost did a dishonest thing.

More About Masako Matsuno

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Masako Matsuno's first book for children grew out of her wish to capture the sound of wooden clogs on a stone road in the "beautiful rhythm of the English language." The idea for the story came to her one day when, riding along the highway, she suddenly felt like walking in wooden clogs to hear the familiar clatter, Kara, koro, kara, koro. She thought, "I shall be happy if this story gives American children 'something Japanese' in sound as well as in spirit."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a true favorite in our home  Sep 18, 2008
After reading this book just once, both girls repeatedly grab this one off of the shelf to be read again and again. It sparks interest is different customs and teaches values.
A PAIR of RED CLOGS  Oct 31, 2007
This story is simply fantastic. I have read it to my children several times and they've enjoyed it the sixth as much as the first. I have taken the opportunity using this story to talk about cultures and traditions in a fun and exciting way.
Great book for all ages  Oct 10, 2007
My two boys, ages 2 and 5 love this book. Universal themes paired with beautiful Japanese art and poetry make it a winner.
A treasure of a book!  Sep 8, 2007
My daughters 6 and 2 request this book so often and still I never tire of reading it. I began the search for high quality childrens books when I could barely get through one sitting of 'Strawberry Shortcake Strikes Again!' or the equivalent. This book is a joy for reader and readee;)
A childhood favorite!  Apr 25, 2006
It's lovely to see this book is back in print. I received a copy as a birthday gift when I was 5 years old (it was a new publication then!) and continue to treasure that same volume today. I also received a real pair of clogs from Japan about the same time, so the story took on even more meaning for me. I have an opportunity to teach a workshop in Japan in May about how our experiences are reflected in our artworks -- and this beautifully illustrated story which taught me so much about integrity, as well as Japanese culture, will be an important reference in my presentation. Simple lessons, so important to a child's character,kindly taught, DO last a lifetime! This is an important book for your child's library.
