Finding Treasure: A Collection of Collections

By: Michelle Schaub / Illustrated by: Carmen Saldaña

I need a good collection!

When her class is assigned to bring in their favorite collections for show and tell, our young narrator panics. She doesn't collect anything! In search of inspiration, she turns to her family and friends. Mom collects buttons, grandpa collects coins, and best friend Meg collects all things black and white. In verse after verse about collectibles, the narrator discovers that her favorite things are not displayed on tables and shelves, but bound in a book to be read again and again. She collects poems!

Carmen Saldana’s pretty, inviting illustrations inspire readers to consider their own collections and how much fun it is to create a story about ourselves with the things we collect.

Maximum quantity available reached.

When a teacher asks his students to bring in something they collect, one girl is at a loss since she doesn’t collect anything. Checking with her family members and friends, she discovers that they all collect something: teapots, snow globes, baseball cards, trains, and clocks are a few of the highly prized items. The brightly colored, digitally created illustrations reveal the many types of collections people own. At least one full page is devoted to each collection and the child describes them in a variety of poetic forms from rhyming couplets to free verse. One example of her poetry is called “My Mother’s Button Box” and begins: “Shiny ones/of shell and glass./Pearly circles,/swirls of brass./Anchors snipped/from navy coats./Plastic hearts,/wooden boats.” Readers will be both surprised and pleased when they find out what the child has decided to collect. The author provides information on how to begin a collection, including a web address for clubs for collectors.
