* I received a copy of this book to review from the publisher, in exchange for my honest review

When a girl receives a beautiful porcelain box from her grandmother, she immediately wants something special to put inside it. But what could it be? What does she love best? She loves jumping in puddles on rainy days, blowing bubbles in the park, and watching her little sister’s first steps. As it turns out, life’s most precious treasures cannot be contained in a box! With a gentle message about the immateriality of happiness, this story reminds us to take pleasure in everyday moments. The book is beautifully packaged with a sparkly die-cut star on the cover, and flaps throughout reveal hidden surprises.

The best treasures are things you can't buy, but the experiences and moments we have with family and friends, and sometimes by ourselves. 

All My Treasures is a cute story about a young girl who wants to fill a special box up that her Grandmother gave her, with special treasures. Each of her treasures are moments / things she loves doing with her family, friends, and even by herself. With it's easy to understand and relatable story, simple illustrations and primary colors, this book is one even the youngest readers will enjoy interacting with. They'll also enjoy finding hidden treasures under the lift the flaps, found on each page. 

On a side note, *the pages are studier than most picture books, but the flaps are still ones that could easily be torn by young readers.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
