When Molly’s and Becca’s parents can no longer afford to keep their house, the family moves into an apartment. The parents try to hide their pain over the loss of their home, and the girls struggle with their emotions as they leave behind their friends, bedrooms, school, and playhouse in the house’s beautiful backyard.
All too late, Becca remembers she left her hidden treasure chest in the tree house. Will another child find her treasure? Would that child care about it or throw it away? As the family unpacks and adjusts to their new lives, they find their most valuable possession—a possession that can never be lost or taken away. With help from an unexpected source, Becca discovers that even if she never returns to her old house, the contents of the treasure chest will always be hers.
A story about losing what we love, the upheaval of moving, and the surprise of delightful discoveries, The Treasure Chest helps both children and adults address difficult issues in today’s world.
