Not a box by Antionette Portis
This book has simple line drawings but the imagination that tags along captures children. This story of a box takes us back to when we ourselves played in a box and it was NOT a box. The favorite toy for children the world over is still a box. That’s because it’s a rocket ship, a pirate ship, a burning house or something else that is simply wonderful. I have found my children pulling this book off the shelf on a regular basis and bringing it to me to read. Imagination is a wonderful thing.
