While her Mama is away, a little girl lives with her grandma. Each Sunday night they pull out their shopping money and dream through the pages of the newspaper ads.
What a fun way to spend a Sunday evening -- or whatever evening of the week you want! So much better that actually spending all that money. Plus you can dream together, use your imaginations, and wish good things for each other. Just this book is a good reason to still buy a physical newspaper. Don’t just wait for Black Friday to pour over the ads - do it every week, instead! Any class can get out the safety scissors and dream along.
