When Great-Grandmother is born, a bluebird sings -- and the song remains in her heart always. Whether she's a girl of six setting a rabbit free with a hug or a great-grandmother throwing mud-puddle parties in the spring, she fills her life to the brim...and even manages to collect a secret treasure along the way. But just what is the treasure, and who will be lucky enough to find it?First-time author Ruth Hickcox wrote Great-Grandmother's Treasure because "the old are far more than they appear." Brought to life by David Soman's exuberant art, this warm tale of priceless treasures is wonderful for young children and grandparents to share, and a gentle way for parents to help children deal with the loss of a grandparent or older loved one.
