Readers will appreciate this book's adventurous spirit and its encouragement to embrace what makes us different. The undercurrent of learning to love what makes one's body unique will be a touching lesson for many children and their parents.
This book is not only a record of one young woman's travels, but also a record of how traveling enables her to celebrate her feet, whose size had resulted in teasing when she was a kid. Her courage - along with her strong feet - helped her to reach her big dream step by step. Along the way, her feet gave her the strength to move through cities and countries far from her home in the Midwest, making happy memories and learning all about the world around her. Whenever she visited new places, she discovered so much about the land, the culture, the food, the people, and much more. Even more importantly, she learned how to love herself just the way she was - including her big feet!
The message is twofold: it is good to explore this beautiful world, and traveling with an open mind and open heart will lead to increased self-love and a deeper appreciation of diversity.
The travel checklist at the end intends to help you take the story out of the realm of imagination and into the real world, encouraging you to embrace Sara's dream to travel abroad, as your own.
