A tender picture story of a grandmother, mother and young daughter saving their money to replace a favorite chair lost in a fire. Bright water color illustrations within imaginative, decorative borders capture the upbeat tone of the story as a jar becomes filled with coins and the family's dream chair finally selected, brought home and enjoyed! Sheer joy! (Honor Book, CCBC Mock Caldecott Straw Vote) (4-9 years)
