Review

Lovely book of beautiful and simple illustrations, written in English and Spanish; that teaches us a good lesson: to value what we have and the importance of being thankful for it. All begins when the grandmother, when she noticed that her grand kids where arguing over some toys, left the room a little sad and angry. When the grandchildren find her, she shows them a box where she kept some things, only three. They were the things she most cherishes. She explains to them what each one represented. It is so that she teaches them that it is not important what one has but what that represents. An important lesson to learn: be grateful of what you have.
