Meet the Authors
It's been a rough couple of months for Mama and James Otis, but Mama says as long as they have their health, they're blessed. One Sunday before Valentine's Day, Reverend Dennis makes an announcement during the service-- the Temples have lost everything in a fire, and the church is collecting anything that might be useful to them. James thinks hard about what he can add to the Temple's "love box," but what does he have worth giving? With her extraordinary gift for storytelling, McKissack--with stunning illustrations by Harrison--reminds us all that what is given from the heart, reaches the heart.
