Not a Box book

Not a Box
Written and illustrated by Antoinette Portis
board book
Recommend Ages: 2-4

A box is just a box...unless it's not a box. From mountain to rocket ship, a small rabbit shows that a box will go as far as the imagination allows. Inspired by a memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her sister, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real—when the imagination takes over inside a cardboard box, and through play, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible. This board book edition has sturdy pages and is a good size for the youngest readers.
