Beautiful watercolors bring to life this gentle story about a girl learning to live in a new home by keeping the memories of her friends in a special "memory box."

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-When Annie moves to a new town by the sea with her parents and grandmother, she misses her old friends. To console her, Grandma shows her the "box of friends" that she has made for herself-a box of mementos of all the dear people she has had in her life. Annie begins to overcome her loneliness as she creates her own box, putting in an arrowhead her friend Matthew gave her, an origami frog from her Japanese pen pal, and a piece of smooth sea glass from Grandma. When she receives a party invitation from the girl down the street that says she can bring a friend, she goes through the box and selects the green sea glass (and her grandmother) to accompany her. Whyte's soft, sea-washed watercolors match Ryan's gentle text. This is a lovely, if slight, tale about the comforts of friendship, even in memory.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
