"New Shoes" by Susan Lynn Meyer is a picture book that shows 'lite' racism during segregation: blacks were not allowed to try on shoes. Ella Mae and Charlotte 'solve the problem' at the end. Pros: Strong black female characters. Actual depiction of racism, unlike most books for this age. Cons: It's set in the past, doesn't discuss racism now.  The problem is 'solved' at the end of the book. Notes: Uses the word negro, which will be difficult for some parents to read aloud.
