A child's delight in a new pair of shoes is the same all over the world, whether the shoes are patent-leather sandals, straw alpargatas, deerskin moccasins, or wooden clogs.
For Mako, a little Japanese girl, the new shoes were clogs painted with red lacquer that shone beautifully. This is the story of what happened after she cracked the new clogs playing the weather-telling game and so longed for a bright, shiny new pair to replace them that she almost did a dishonest thing.

We used this book for our FIAR homeschool curriculum. My children learned about Japan, their culture and that children really are the same around the world! It has been a couple of weeks since we read it last, but my son was able to tell others about it with amazing detail, it really stuck with him.
I read this book when I was younger and always remembered it. I am so glad it is back in print! It is a fantastic story, and the illustrations are even better. I recommend it to everyone, and every age group.
Purple House Press is reissuing A Pair of Red Clogs in the late fall of 2002! We also publish two other previously out of print FIAR books.
