Shoes from Grandpa

Jessie, an active girl of nine or so, is growing out of her clothes, and all of the members of her large and loving family get carried away in their eagerness to provide her with a new wardrobe. . . As each of Jessie’s relatives gets into the act, the rhythmic cumulative tale builds momentum. . . Finally . . . she tactfully speaks her mind: ‘You’re all so kind that I hate to be mean, but please, would one of you buy me some jeans?’ Youngsters will enjoy seeing Jessie’s free spirit gently triumph.
