Title: The Orange Shoes


Author: Trinka Hakes Noble


Pages: 32

Summary(from publisher): Delly Porter enjoys the feel of soft dirt beneath her feet as she walks to and from school, but after a classmate makes her feel ashamed of having no shoes she learns that her parents and others, too, see value in things that don’t cost money.

Accompanying Discussion: Ask students about the lessons learned in this story. Discuss bullying in school – how was Delly bullied? Talk about creating a “shoebox” for a Shoebox Social – what kind of dinner would you put in it? Discuss objects that are orange. 

Accompanying Activities: There are lots of great activities here. Have students color a pair of shoes, making them special in their own way!
