The Magic of Shoes
by Saudah Aziz
Sheba was born in America, but her father and ancestors are from West Africa. Shebas family celebrated her birth with a new pair of shoes. Ever since then, new shoes create a magical spirit that protects Sheba.
On her sixth birthday, Sheba visits her family in Ghana. At first she is happy to receive a new pair of sandals. But when she puts them on her feet something happens: the sandals are different; they look different, feel different, and smell different. Each new pair of shoes that Sheba receives gives Sheba a different attitude. Sheba begins to develop positive relationships by using the love in the magic shoes.
