When Wynona sees a beautiful dress in a store window, she has to have it. But, although Wynona's mother works hard to support her three children, there's never any money left over for luxuries -- not even for special occasions like her daughter's sixth-grade graduation. Will Wynona be forced to wear a friend's old hand-me-down dress, or will her mother find a way to grant her daughter's wish?

Mary Whyte's heartfelt paintings perfectly complement Helen Ketteman's lyrical story about the true meaning of generosity and a mother's love.
