“Sometimes, that’s all it takes: one person to show interest in a lonely child. A good discussion starter on empathy.”

The Color Collector is a poignant story about newness, friendship, and common ground. When a boy notices the new girl picking up all manner of debris and litter on their walks home from school he wants to know why.

He learns all about where she’s come from and they both find how wonderful it is to make a new friend.
