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!
