When this story first came out in hardcover, my daughter was a very warm, sensitive, little eight year old. Now, at seventeen, Treasure in an Oatmeal Box continues to be the story she remembers and loves the most from when she was little. Her compassion for "special" children has grown over the years and she has helped many of her classmates who have special needs. I read this wonderful story to her the first time, and she read it herself several times after that. Treasure in an Oatmeal Box is still on her book shelf. Since then, I have read it to my granddaughter and have given another copy to a mother of five. It is truly a moving story to use to teach your children compassion for those "special" people they'll encounter throughout life. I highly recommend this book for all children to read.

This book won't take an adult long to read, but it will it will touch your heart for a long time afterwards. It's a great read-aloud book, but prepared for a few tears along the way. I've read it to several children of all ages, and not one has disliked the book. I've given it as gifts and am always loaning my own copy out. It is the touching story of twins who are very different from one another and how those differences affect their day-to-day lives. More importantly, it's a story about not letting differences get in the way of the really important things.

I think everyone should read this book. I read it when I was about nine and cried through the last half of the book. I think it must take a lot of powerful writing to make a nine-year-old sob through a book. This book touched my life and I have always had a special passion for those "special" people I have come in contact with all because of the treasure in the oatmeal box...

This book was read to me and my 4th grade class over 10 years ago. Today, it remains my favorite book ever. I remember most of my class sobbing through the majority of it, and how people I have kept in touch with still remember how it touched our class as a whole. I truly believe that everyone could learn something from reading it
