The pink slippers on the wall catch her eye. “Those are the most beautiful shoes I’ve seen in all my life.” Down at the corner of Magnolia and Vine, you’ll find the shop of Shoebox Sam--where old shoes become like new again and anyone in need finds a friend. Delia and Jessie spend Saturdays with Shoebox Sam, helping him with customers, rich and poor. They learn about giving and caring, loving and sharing. Then one day, when a customer notices a prized pair of shoes, they uncover their greatest lesson of all.
