Hannah loves to make collections. Whether it’s new barrettes for her hair or seashells from the shore, she likes to gather things and sort them by size, shape, and color.

But now she is facing a dilemma. The children in her class have been invited to bring their favorite collection to school. How can she possibly pick a favorite?

Once again, Hannah’s boundless imagination wins the day. She finds a way to show off all of her collections in a surprising new way.
