Anita Williams’ The Treasure Keeper is a whimsical book for kids but with real take-away value. In this delightful fiction, spunky Marcos tries to find out how to prove he is big enough to work with his father and his uncle in the street market. Along the way he and his goats have a grand adventure in which Marcos finds many treasures and in the end makes the best discovery of all—about himself. The lilting style and delightful vocabulary are as engaging as the characters themselves. Readers will feel right at home in Marcos’s colorful, warm Brazil.
