In recent years, the phrase "a goody two shoes" has developed a negative connotation, implying that the virtuousness of a such a person is insincere. This was certainly not the case in the original story. It is a charming tale of good rewarded and evil punished - a classic "happily every after" story.

Again, this is one of those stories that was read to me as a child, to have it read to me again now I'm old was fun. There is certainly no intellectural depth, just plain good.
My daughter liked that the girl helped teach children who did not know how to read.
My daughter loved the part where the girl got her shoes and was so happy.
She has a pleasant voice.
