Little Button

Little Button is best friends with Buttonhole. They’re placed right under the collar of Anna’s
favorite blouse. One day, Little Button’s thread loosens and she falls behind the toy box. In that
dark dusty space, Little Button meets a Rattle, a Bib, and a Stuffed Animal that are no longer
used and forgotten. Little Button tells them, “Anna can wipe her own tears now. She can eat
without spilling on her clothes, and go to bed by herself – all because you helped her grow up.”

A beautiful, sentimental story celebrating growth.
