A Penny for Your Thoughts
AuthorHouse, 2010 - 56 pages
A Penny For Your Thoughts is a heartwarming story about a nine-year-old boy named Tyler and the special relationship he shares with his grandfather, Papa William. When his grandfather leans down to pick up a penny, Tyler tells him it won't actually bring him good luck. When they discover the penny was made the same year Papa William was born, it sparks interest. Papa William had been so many places and seen so many things! Where had this penny been? Who had it belonged to? These questions create a secret hobby of treasure hunting for pennies. Each penny they find is an opportunity to create another magical story or exciting adventure. As their story telling abilities get stronger, so does their bond. This story not only bridges the gap between generations, but also teaches Tyler (and the reader) that sometimes the best treasures in life aren't material things at all.
