Willie’s Wagon is a perfect story to read to grandkids. It teaches young people about sharing and helping others, and shows the benefits of helping others who are less fortunate.
In this colorful children’s book, we meet seven-year-old Willie, a boy who has lost interest in the world around him. To him, everything is “Bor-ring!” Then one day, his family takes him to visit an apple farm, and while playing with a kitten in the barn, he discovers a forgotten children’s wagon which sparks his interest and curiosity.
A week or so later, Willie’s class prepares to take a field trip … but Willie is nowhere to be found. But Willie isn’t playing hooky. He has been given permission to prepare a special surprise for a group of less fortunate children. Readers of all ages will find this delightful adventure inspiring and heartwarming.
