If you give a child a box, who can tell what will happen next? It may become a library or a boat. It could set the scene for a fairy tale or a wild expedition. The most wonderful thing is its seemingly endless capacity for magical adventure, a feature imaginatively captured in cardboardesque art by Chris Sheban and rhythmically celebrated in this poetic tribute by renowned children's author Jane Yolen.

No child will need this as an instruction manual, but every child will see themselves in this book. Yolen is a treasure. She truly understands children and how to tell a story. The illustrations are beautiful.

A great book to inspire imagination playing with a box, not that a child would need the inspiration but fun non-the-less!

Have a box? Any size will do! Use your imagination with a friend or all alone. How many stories can you tell when creating a sailboat, a race car, a beach or even a palace?

"Think outside the box" and let your imagination run wild about all the things that you can do with a box. Great companion book to "Not a Box" & "Not a Stick" both by Antoinette Portis. Ages 3-6
