A Dutch immigrant family comes to Canada and begins a new tradition of hanging their old shoes on a young maple tree.
Colourfully illustrated and told with imagination and verve, The Shoe Tree tells a story that will delight all young readers. ~HUGH COOK, author of Cracked Wheat and Other Stories, The Homecoming Man and Home in Alfalfa
The Shoe Tree is endearing and meaningful for readers young and old. The spirited story shares the desire of many newcomers to bring a piece of home with them to Canada. We are grateful for these gifts of family traditions and experiences which continue to enrich Canada's multicultural landscape. This wonderful story will be enjoyed by all generations of Canadians. ~RUTH M. GOLDBLOOM, O.C., O.NS, Pier 21, Halifax, NS
