Description

Sam and Milo are best friends, on and off the basketball court. But then Milo moves away. He leaves Sam with a special gift—a book of his very own. Sam treasures the book and loses himself in the story, which helps take his mind off missing his friend and a big change coming in his family. But when the beloved book goes missing, Sam begins to understand that the real gift Milo gave him is one that can be given and received again and again.

Ages 5-9.
