Book Review: The Sandal Artist

Roberto is a poor artist who wants to become famous.  Roberto believes he will become famous by painting grand masterpieces of what he believes is beautiful.  People from his village encourage him to paint them. He doesn't because he fails to see their beauty. 

When Roberto needs his shoes fixed, he is loaned a pair of worn sandals by a cobbler.  The sandals come with a warning, that those who wear the shoes of another will see the world through his eyes. While wearing these shoes, Roberto sees true beauty. He begs to know who the sandals belonged to.

The Sandal Artist by Kathleen T. Pelley is a sweet story with a great message. The full page illustrations add to the depth of the story. I really enjoyed reading it. In fact, I just had to read it with my oldest son.  This would be a great edition to a family library or to use in a church or school classroom.

I received a free copy of this book from a Curious City giveaway.
