John and Marta woke up one morning to find a boy sleeping on their porch.
They aren't sure what to make of his mysterious ways - he doesn't speak, but only taps to communicate. What he can't SAY he makes up for with ART. He finds joy in painting, playing instruments, and using his imagination.
When no one comes for the boy, John and Marta are left to wonder: Should we keep him? Put him in school? Report this to the authorities?
What will become of the boy on the porch and not that he's almost a part of their family, how could John and Marta ever live without him?
A great read-aloud for any age!
