The Treasure Box
Join us Thursday, May 19th at 5pm as we talk to author Dave Keane about his book ‘The Treasure Box’.
Searching for treasures with her grandpa is this young girl’s favorite thing to do. Every week they examine the items in her secret box and go on walks to find more—a broken robin’s egg, rusty spring, even a snakeskin that makes Grandpa squirm and make funny faces.
But then Grandpa is too sick to come. She leaves him a few treasures in the hospital, but when he dies, she can’t bring herself to even open the treasure box.
When Grammy brings her some treasures Grandpa wanted her to have, they open the box together and continue the tradition, showing that memories of time together are the greatest treasures of all.
This poignant, gorgeously-illustrated story celebrates the special bonds kids have with grandparents, even after they are gone.Penguin Random House
