Wonderful children's book!!! After a young Dutch girl writes to her new American friend in thanks for the care package sent after World War II, she begins to receive increasingly larger boxes.
What a heart-warming story (based on the author's mother's experiences after WWII). Children learn compassion, learn that other's are not so fortunate as we are, learn that they can make a difference in someone else's life.
