This book is about a happy, but overscheduled child who has a transformative experience when her grandfather invites her to sit down and do *GASP* nothing for awhile. The story magically unfolds as Coco discovers the wonders of her own imagination and the true value of a moment of quiet. Christine Gardner wrote this delightful and positive message for children as well as adults. There is no question that our most creative and restorative moments generally happen when the noise of the world calms around us. It is the author's sincerest hope to inspire us all to clear some clutter from our children's lives and give them the time and the space to simply let go.
