A boy and his father trek from El Salvador to the United States in the bilingual tale of Mis zapatos y yo. René is excited to begin the long walk with new shoes sent all the way from the US where his mother waits. Textured illustrations focus on the footwear from clever perspectives as they become ragged and worn, but the excitement remains as the family is reunited, their shoes tied together and carried in hand.
