We have a super-cute KidLit book for you today. This book reminds me of when I was little and we used to play inside a giant (it seemed giant to us at the time) refrigerator box with windows cut out of it. It was our playhouse for quite some time and we loved it. It was also where my imaginary friends met their untimely end (thrown out a window . . . oops).

As I said before, this book reminded me of the fun my sisters and I had with a big box when we were little. It was a house to us, like a little indoor tree fort. And we spent hours in that box. That’s what I thought of when I read this book to Mister Chu the other day. All the possibilities of what a simple box can be to a child, once they start using their imagination (something that comes rather naturally to a child).
The artwork on this book is extremely simple, not exactly my style, but it works for this book. It is, after all, just about a box. But a box can be so many different things and this really is an imaginative story.
Did you ever play with a box when you were a kid? What did your box become?
