A little girl needs a very special button. It must be just the right size and the perfect color to replace a missing eye on her beloved teddy bear. Grandma's button tin is the place to look, and it is full of stories. Her grandmother tells her the story of each one. Nanna was wearing a green button the day she met Grandpa, an angel shaped one kept her safe when she was sick, and a yellow one was on the outfit she wore home from the hospital. At last they find just the right button and Nanna sews it on the bear.
