The Girl with the Green Shoes is about inclusion and owning your unique qualities not because of the way you look or dress but your inner spirit. Finding confidence and trusting your instincts to be yourself no matter what. Willow has a quirky style and she gets teased when she comes to school with a pair of special shoes that are to correct her legs and help them grow strait and strong. In time she realizes that they are pretty cool after all. She grows out of them and passes them along to another girl to be authentic and funky too.
