Synopsis

Double Happiness by Nancy Tupper Ling, Alina Chau

For their move far away, Gracie and Jake are sad to leave But they fill empty boxes with treasures - a marble, a snake, a pair of wings. Tiny reminders of all they love - so happiness stays close, no matter where they go. With grace and warmth, this lyrical picture book speaks to the difficulty of transition, and celebrates the ways in which love and family give us the strength to weather life's changes.
