This book is aimed at children of ages 4-8. A touching story, activity book, and keepsake all in one, this heart-warming tale of a boy's gift to cheer up his mother will have other children making gifts and memories with their families as well. When Raymond's mother comes down with a cold, he paints a picture entitled "Tea Party with Monkeys in a Banana Tree Beside a Purple Sea" to cheer her up. When the picture is accidentally thrown away, it begins a grand adventure that spans decades - healing everyone it touches - as it makes its way back to the woman for whom it was created. At the end of the book, when the mother sees her now-grown son's artwork for the first time in 20 years, the page is left blank for kids to draw or paint their own vision of "Tea Party with Monkeys in a Banana Tree Beside a Purple Sea".
