Box of Friendsby Pam Munoz Ryan, Mary Whyte, Mary Whyte
Award winning author Pam Munoz Ryan has created a heart-warming tale about a girl adjusting to a new home. When Annie's family moves to the beach, Annie misses her friends and is worried that she won't be able to make new ones. Luckily, Grandma knows just what to do. She shows Annie a box filled with mementos—a feather, a white stone, and a bouquet of roses— and explains how each of these things reminds her of a special day with one of her friends. Together, she and Annie decorate a box for Annie and fill it with things that will remind Annie of the friends she misses so much.
