One of the current favorite books in our home is Not a Box by Antoinette Portis. We also love her book, Not a Stick.
Not a Box is a simple book with pencil drawings of a rabbit and a box. Well, a rabbit and his Not a Box. These little books really capture the essence of a child’s imagination that can turn a box into a mountain, a pirate ship or a burning building. In just a reading or two, the children will be shouting, “It’s not a box!” as you read.
What child can resist an empty box?
And sadly, some of us must admit we are just too big to get in the Not a Box.
