The Magic Straw Hat by Karen Jonice Bricker -- OPTIONAL
Caitie is enthralled by the story of her grandmother's straw hat and the generations of women it has helped. But when Caitie wears the hat to a neighbor's house, something terrible happens: the hat blows away! How will Caitie ever find the beloved hat again? And if she can't, how can she break the news to her grandmother? While it's not particularly unique, this is a sweet -- if wordy -- story with pretty illustrations.
