It's not always easy having a brother like Kevin . . . But Kim loves her brother more than she knows.
Starting out in a brand new school makes ten-year-old Kim even more aware of Kevin's limitations. While he is her twin, he's different not only from her, but also from all the other kids at school. Sometimes he just can't help embarrassing her and getting into trouble.
God uses many tools to teach the people in Kevin's life that He made Kevin special for His purposes:
an injured puppy named Wiggles
Jarrod, the school bully,
a terrifying encounter with a bear,
an older couple who befriend Kevin,
and finally, an unexpected loss that touches each one's life.
Though written for children, this is a heartwarming story for all ages. Discover how Treasure in an Oatmeal Box explores the trials, tragedies, and triumphs of life through the bitter-sweet tale of a special boy and his family.
