A heartwarming story about a girl's plan to buy her mom the perfect Mother's Day present

Where there’s a will, there’s a way . . . As soon as Sara sees the beautiful black satin slippers in the shoe store window, she knows they’re the perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mama. Sara has always made gifts for her family on special occasions, but this time she’s determined to give a store-bought present—just like grown-ups do. But grown-ups have spending money, and Sara does not. Until she makes a plan . . .

“A gentle tribute to family solidarity. . . . Vigorous and expressive illustrations capture the luminous charm of the book.”—The Horn Book
