  • Koketso’s party shoes

    Koketso is going to her best friend’s birthday party, but there is a problem – she only has her ugly, brown shoes to wear. Koketso tells Granny that the shoes are too small, even though they are new. When Granny seems to ignore Koketso, she sets out to find pretty party shoes. Everyone helps Koketso by giving her a pair of shoes to wear, but none of the shoes are quite right. Koketso goes back home with a heavy heart only to discover that Granny has made a wonderful plan.
