Boxes for Katje

By Candace Fleming
Picture Books

Friendships develop across the ocean when an American town takes it upon itself to support Katje’s family, who live in war-torn Holland. The packages sent help the townspeople through one of the worst winters, which happens when the war ends. This book is a wonderful tool to help children think of others.
