Summary: From the creators of the bestselling In My Heart comes a picture book exploration of happiness and the true nature of joy.
When a girl receives a beautiful porcelain box from her grandmother, she immediately wants something special to put inside it. But what could it be? What does she love best? She loves jumping in puddles on rainy days, blowing bubbles in the park, and watching her little sister’s first steps. As it turns out, life’s most precious treasures cannot be contained in a box! With a gentle message about the immateriality of happiness, this story reminds us to take pleasure in everyday moments. The book is beautifully packaged with a sparkly die-cut star on the cover, and flaps throughout reveal hidden surprises.
The Growing Hearts series celebrates the milestones of a toddler’s emotional development, from conquering fears and expressing feelings to welcoming a new sibling.
About the Author & Illustrator
Christine Roussey is the illustrator of Hello in There!, In My Heart, and Brave As Can Be. She lives in France.
I simply adore this book. A darling little girl receives a treasure box from her grandmother and instead of filling it with candy and toys she places things that she holds dear, like special memories, the sunrise, and lazy mornings. The story and little girl are full of love and inspiration and the world would be a better place if we all aspired to find the kind of treasures she places in her box. A wonderful book for both children and adults.
I highly recommend All My Treasures.
