Description/Notes
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. "Fleming 's engaging story of post-WWII Holland serves as a potent and merry lesson in generosity. . .Dressen-McQueen immerses readers in post-war Holland, crafting an entirely credible world of cobblestone streets, Dutch architecture and vintage clothing." --Starred, Publishers Weekly "As heartwarming and uplifting as a bouquet of tulips." --Kirkus Reviews Set in World War II-era Holland, this inspiring story, with strikingly original art, is based on the author's mother's childhood and will show young readers that they, too, can make a difference.
