Some stories are so basically Christian they dont need to have the point explained or Scripture poured into them. Shoebox Sam is one of these stories. Nationally acclaimed artist and winner of the Coretta Scott King award, Frank Morrison fills every page from side to side and top to bottom with color, motion, and enjoyment. Noted author and editor Mary Barrett obviously loved writing this story. Warmth, humor, great characterization, and satisfying plot resolution make Shoebox Sam unforgettable. This is a wonderful book for reading out loud, dramatizing, and individual enjoyment, as well as an adjunct to reading curriculum. Your school, church, and home library needs this book!
