Jackson loves his blanket more than anything in the world. He brings it with him everywhere--to the beach, to the doctor, and even outside to play. He just can't imagine life without it!

But one day, when he finds a lonely little kitten in the snow, Jackson realizes that he just might be willing to give up his blanket--for some things are worth sharing with someone you love.

Nancy Cote's adorable story of sacrifice and growing up will touch readers with its simple telling of an important lesson. Her vibrant illustrations will instantly hook young readers, and her lyrical rhymes are great for reading aloud.
