When two siblings go on a treasure hunt, they aren't sure exactly what kind of treasure they are looking for. What they do know is that treasures are shiny, mysterious and precious. And that all the really good treasures are hidden!
As they explore the forest, the little brother finds objects he thinks could be treasures: a feather, an acorn, a milkweed pod. But his sister is not easily impressed. As they travel, he starts to doubt his sister, but their curiosity pays off when they find the biggest, shiniest, most mysterious and precious treasure hidden just over a hill.
Told exclusively in dialogue, the story encourages readers to look for the small, everyday treasures that surround us. This beautifully illustrated picture book exudes a sense of wonder at the natural world and emphasizes the magical qualities of looking through a child's eye.
