What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Adam Grant, the bestselling author of Give and Take, teams with his wife, Allison, to share the lighthearted tale of a gift in search of a giver–a classic in the making.

A mysterious gift box finds himself in search of someone to open him, but nobody seems to be the right one. After disheartening interactions with grabby kids, selfish siblings, and other single-minded would-be recipients, the box wonders if he’ll ever find someone deserving of him. Could that someone be the very person who’s reading the book itself?

Give the gift of this clever, earnest book about generosity–a new and nourishing fable for every child’s library (and one that includes a delightfully innovative cover approach that requires the reader to unfasten the Velcroed cover for a fun unboxing effect!).

Who Wrote The Gift Inside the Box

author
Adam Grant

As an organizational psychologist at Wharton, Adam Grant has studied generosity for a decade and a half. Ever since he published his bestselling book Give and Take and wrote his viral New York Times op-ed on raising a moral child, parents have been asking him for a children’s book on the topic. But where to begin? Enter: Allison. As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, writer, and mom to their three children, Allison Sweet Grant knew just where to begin with a funny, engaging picture book that would delight their own kids.
