Item Description...
Two young Afghani girls living in a refugee camp in Pakistan share a precious pair of sandals brought by relief workers.

Publishers Description
When relief workers bring used clothing to the refugee camp, everyone scrambles to grab whatever they can. Ten-year-old Lina is thrilled when she finds a sandal that fits her foot perfectly, until she sees that another girl has the matching shoe. But soon Lina and Feroza meet and decide that it is better to share the sandals than for each to wear only one. As the girls go about their routines washing clothes in the river, waiting in long lines for water, and watching for their names to appear on the list to go to America the sandals remind them that frie ndship is what is most important. Four Feet, Two Sandals was inspired by a refugee girl who asked the authors why there were no books about children like her. With warm colors and sensitive brush strokes, this book portrays the strength, courage, and hope of refugees around the world, whose daily existence is marked by uncertainty and fear.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A book with global appeal about friendship in a unique environment  Mar 29, 2009
Four Feet Two Sandals was written by the authors in response to a request from girls in a refugee camp for a story about girls like them. I suspect that there are only a few books for children that increase awareness of the plights of refugee children around the world. This book gives a glimpse of their lives to adult and young readers alike through colorful illustrations and language suitable for young readers. It teaches about scarcity of resources and sharing. It vividly illustrates a friendship based on sharing of one pair of sandals and the hardships experienced by two girls. In addition to being a book that parents would want to share with their children, it will enhance the collection of any community or faith-based library.
too pc.  Dec 12, 2008
this book is going to be read to the children at my church. They will like the book but the couple of children who have read it needed it explained to them theat even though it was silly to only have one shoe there was a reason for the book. Missed the point for the kids.
Friendship  Dec 12, 2008
This book is "cute". Tells of a friendship between 2 Middle East children.
It ended differently than I would have thought...A good story, good fast reading..Enjoy!
Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children  Aug 14, 2008
Lina and Feroza, two young girls from Afghanistan living in a refugee camp in Pakistan, first meet after a frenzied crowd has jostled for used clothing that relief workers threw off the back of a truck. What could have been a misfortune, with each girl retrieving one sandal from a matching pair, turns out to be a stroke of luck as the girls take turns with the sandals and become friends. This friendship helps them to endure the hardships of their daily routines collecting water, washing clothes in the river, mourning lost family members, and caring for younger siblings while boys in the camp attend school. The sandals later take on a symbolic role when one of the girls leaves camp for a new home.

This moving book provides an effective tool for teaching about what it means to be a refugee, how children in refugee camps spend their time, and how the experiences can differ for girls and boys. Although the topic may be weighty and difficult, the tone is relatively subtle and hopeful so as to appeal to young readers. Intertwined with the touching story are valuable economics lessons about scarcity, human resources, wants, and needs. The dramatic artwork and compelling text work well together to make reading this book a memorable experience.
Powerful and Touching  Jul 28, 2008
A realistic, powerful and touching children's story that takes a lesson on sharing what we have on a deeper level than most children experience in the States.
