Priscilla liked collecting things.

Not any one type of thing in particular. She collected little things, big things, ordinary things, just things in general. Priscilla was a pack rat.

Priscilla tries to pick out birthday presents for her friends, but has trouble parting with her favorite finds. In the end, Priscilla learns to value the party — and her friends — more than the presents!

Includes a Note to Parents and Other Caregivers by Elizabeth McCallum, PhD, with more information about cutting down on clutter, and the difference between collecting and potential hoarding behaviors.
