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
