Summary
Grandma has oodles and oodles of shoes. Walking shoes, dancing shoes, fancy and plain, Grandma has a shoe for every occasion. So why are these scratched and dusty old ones so special? A picture book for young children about a grandmother's journey as a little girl from Vietnam to Australia, this is a refugee story told through engaging illustrations and a gentle, rhythmic story. A short fact section at the back of the book introduces children to the history of Australian immigration. This sensitively told story encourages children to understand the plight felt by refugees, in the past and today, and to appreciate the contribution that refugees have made in shaping this nation
