What to Do With a Box

box_cover.jpgI know my kids aren’t the only ones who loved a big cardboard box to play in when they were little. The possibilities a box posed–it could be a fort, a house, a car. Imagination and crayons ran wild. What to Do With a Box explores that love for a cozy nook and the ever-changing possibilities. Jane Yolen‘s poetic text is matched perfectly with Chris Sheban‘s inspired illustrations.

Follow up your reading with cardboard box playtime; then read more books about imagination.
