“The girl thought to herself, “Each day is much like this. Each day is a gift…with a bit of magic. It is ours to enjoy, to taste, to experience.” And, because she didn’t know how many candies were in that miraculous little dish, she savored each one as if it were her last.” 

(I mean did my voice break, did my eyes mist over as I read this to my little girl? Yes, yes it did.)

When a girl finds a magical candy dish that gives her one spectacularly amazing piece of candy every day she learns what it means to be grateful for what she has. It’s a book about contentment and appreciating the gift that every day is. The story is enchanting and the illustrations are beautiful. This is truly a gift-worthy book! I think it would be precious to give this along with a vintage candy dish too. Something to keep treasures in!
