A beautiful story about generosity that would make a good readaloud for mid-upper elementary kids.

This is the story of a love box and the specific items that a mom and son provide. The pastors' statement really resonates with me; it is "what is given from the heart reaches the heart".

Deep and beautiful, bound to bring a sense of grace and thanks to anyone.

Patricia McKissack's stories always resonate with hope. Great book to add to Valentine's display.
