My Review: When a little girl received a porcelain box from her grandmother, she celebrated with joy and happiness. Now she has to look for something to put inside her box. But what could it be? It has to be something special, a perfect treasure to put inside. She would like to put her candles inside but they will stick to it. Coins, but it will scratch the box. Her toys were too big. What about rainy days, since she loves playing in the rain. Bubbies, because she loves to blow bubbles. What about her paper boats? She wants to fill the box with something that is colorful, bright and beautiful.

The illustrations are vibrant, bold and colorful with each page with a lift-a-flaps which helps tell the story.


FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from adrams appleseed in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
