Emily's Balloon

Average rating
5 out of 5
Based on 22 Ratings and 22 Reviews

Book Description
One day, Emily gets a balloon. By the end of the afternoon, the balloon is no longer just a plaything. Emily and the balloon are friends. But when the balloon blows away, what will Emily do? The beautifully evocative illustrations and the timeless innocence of the story make this deceptively simple book a sure classic -- sweet, compelling, and filled with the wonder and discovery of friendship.
