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, and how it evolves after they are gone.

Description

"When [Grandpa] dies, Keane (Who Wants a Tortoise?) expresses the child’s grief with restraint — the memorial service is 'a sad party you have when someone dies' — and the loss slowly leads to someone new to share treasure with. Keane writes with sensitivity and deep feeling, and Bell’s images give the story freshness and immediacy.... This closely observed portrait of a shared bond between a grandparent and grandchild explores love and loss." — Publishers Weekly
