Donkey Hodie is intrigued by the Book Swap Box being built by Duck Duck. The box offers others the opportunity to share by bringing a book to leave and taking new book with them in return. Donkey leaves one of her Hee Haw Hannah books and chooses the book left by Duck Duck to take with her.

Duck Duck has a hard time seeing one of her favorite books go away. When Donkey learns how much Duck Duck misses the book, she offers to return it but Duck Duck recognizes that sharing sometimes involves saying goodbye to things you like. Donkey Hodie recalls a time she said goodbye to a favorite toy which helps Duck Duck to feel better.

When Donkey finishes the book, she returns it to the Book Swap Box where Purple Panda promptly chooses to borrow it. Duck Duck feels nervous when she learns that the book will be going all the way to Planet Purple. Harriett Elizabeth Cow helps Duck Duck to feel better about giving away something she loves by placing a goodbye poem inside the book.
