When someone has everything already, what do you give him/her? Mooch searches for a gift for Earl but can't decide on what to get. He searches and searches until in the end he realizes that sometimes the simplest gift can be the greatest gift. So what does Mooch get Earl? A box of nothing!

This was a cute story with adorable illustrations!

What do I give to a friend that has everything? This is what Mooch questions himself. He can't think of anything to give to his friend Earl. Mooch racks his brain for an idea but Earl already has it. Find out what Mooch thinks of and read "The Gift of Nothing".

Even though I read this book for fun, I loved it. It's so cute and the illustrations are so adorable.

I love this book. The characters are adorable and I love the message about giving of yourself. We are so caught up in the material things in this world. This story teaches us the importance of relationships and loving one another. I highly recommend it for all ages!
