A great story about friendship

Williams, Karen Lynn and Mohammed, Khadra (2007). Four Feet, Two Sandals. Grades 2-4.

What would it be like to live in a refugee camp as a child? Meet Lina and Feroza, two young Afghani girls living in Pakistan who become friends after each finds one sandal from a matching pair. At first they do not want to find a solution and each girl wears one sandal, but soon they work up the courage to talk to each other and solve their problem. This is a great story about a friendship between two girls from different backgrounds.
