Hurrah! We’re thrilled that The Secret of the Tattered Shoes has been featured as part of the Evanston Public Library’s 101 Great Books for Kids List for 2020! Jackie Morris and Ehsan Abdollahi’s mysterious tale was one of six books featured in the folk and fairy tales section!
Read what they had to say below.
Evanston Public Library is pleased to announce the results of our incredibly hardworking 101 Great Books for Kids committee. 2020 proved to be a particularly difficult year for us. When the pandemic closed our library in March it also kept all the books we were trying to read sequestered away. Thanks to the magnificent efforts of staff members like Jessica Iverson, however, deliveries were made in a safe and efficient manner to everyone in their homes. In the end, we may have ended up reading more books for this committee than ever before.
