What People are Saying About This

Trish Berg

"This story is timeless. It is told in a way only Lewis can tell, and has such a powerful message for our children - and for us.In a fast paced world where nobody has time for "different," these children learn that sometimes different is good, and can bless you beyond your dreams. As a mother of 4 children all under 12, I plan on reading In Jesse's Shoes to my children again and again. And I plan on spending some time talking to them about kindness, compassion, and acceptance. About walking in someone elses shoes before you judge or mock the."--(Trish Berg,
