A young girl finds a clever way to keep her favorite things—and people—close to her forever, from Caldecott Honoree Vera Brosgol.
Freda is devastated when she can't eat all the delicious blueberries she's picked. She has to wait a whole year before they're back, and she doesn't want to lose them! But her Gran reminds her that they can save blueberries in a jar, as jam.
So Freda begins to save all her favorite things, like the yummy scent of a just-baked chocolate chip cookie, brand-new crayons with pristine, pointy tips, and a cloud shaped exactly like a unicorn.
But it turns out that saving everything also means she can’t enjoy anything, and Freda realizes that some things are best saved as memories.
Vera Brosgol has created another unique, funny, and heartfelt story, perfect for anyone who treasures family and love.
