Product Description

In Leather Shoe Charlie by Gyeong-hwa Kim, Charlie is a boy living in England during the time of the Industrial Revolution. When the family comes on hard times, they move to Manchester to find work in the mills. Where they were hoping to find opportunity and prosperity instead they find deplorable working and living conditions. Even the children are meant to work, and the workers all begin to call Charlie "Leather Shoe Charlie", for the fine leather shoes that his cobbler grandfather made him make a click, click, click sound. When Charlie's mother comes down with a bad cough that won't go away, and the family doesn't have enough money for the medicine she needs, Charlie makes a sacrifice to help his family. Includes historical information in the back about the Industrial Revolution.

An appealing and educational story about the Industrial Revolution

Charlie’s most prized possession is the pair of shoes his grandfather made for him. The shoes bring him comfort as he and his family leave their small village and move to Manchester. But the pollution from the city’s many factories soon takes its toll on Charlie’s mother. Unfortunately, the medicine she needs is too expensive, unless Charlie can make an exceptional sacrifice.
