For as long as Steven can remember, Aunt Carolyn has traveled around the world, and she always sends him postcards from the places she visits. Those postcards make Steven feel special. This summer Aunt Carolyn is coming to the annual block party and Steven wants to do something to make his aunt feel special too. He is determined to give her the perfect gift, but with little time and money, he worries that he won’t be able to find the right thing. Just when Steven begins to lose hope, he discovers a surprising inspiration—and learns that the best gifts of all come straight from the heart.
