Lesson 13: Expensive Shoes

"From Home to School" by Ana Gianola

This story addresses themes of shopping for shoes, comparing prices, looking for bargains, children wanting what is popular, and arguing about expenditures.


  • What is the maximum amount of money you would spend on a pair of athletic shoes for your child?
  • How often do you need to buy new ones?
  • Do you buy new ones because they are worn out, because they are too small, or because your child wants something more stylish?
  • What other things do your children see that
  • they also want to have?
