Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Teach children the values that really matter - illustrations are heartwarming and this story inspired by events that happen to so many families (rebuilding after a fire) can help heal young minds.

Wonderful children's book about the saving money, hard work and that family is more important that your personal possessions. There are so many good messages in this book! A must read for all parents of kids 7 and under!
