Enrich kids' worlds with this engaging (and educational) bilingual story book in dual English and Cantonese text. This tale reveals that when a shoemaker and his wife sleep in their bed, somebody is quietly working away downstairs. These secret intruders are busying themselves snipping and stitching and swishing and swooshing and, in no time at all, a beautiful pair of shoes sits gleaming on the counter! How will the penniless shoemaker ever find out who is helping him? Readers will soon find out the truth as they read along! Captivating illustrations and storyline offers readers/instructors a real-world way to discuss PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education), themes of perseverance and overcoming adversity, and/or about the beauty of lending a helping hand to others. Recommended for ages 5 to 7. Paperback.
