"A box! A box is a strange device."
From the invention of card board until now, I'm pretty sure that kids have been preferring the box the toy came in over the toy throughout history. Especially now with the existence of a very large online general store named after one of the largest rivers in the world (rhymes with Mamazon) there seems to always be a ready supply of boxes at our house. These boxes have been ships of all sorts - pirate, viking, row boat, sailing. They've been houses, nests, dens, hide outs, you name it. I'm sure your kids do the same. What To Do With A Box by Jane Yolen and Chris Sheban pays tribute to the humble yet oh so versatile box and the many ways kids love to play with them. Take a peek inside at the beautiful art work!

Can you make a vehicle?
Can you make a shelter - a house, a pirate fort, a castle?
What can you imagine today?
