There's A Book

Not a Box by Antoinette Portis

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 realโ€”when the imagination takes over and inside a cardboard box, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible.

This is an absolute favorite in our house and was actually one of our very first Turkeybird reviews! Read our review for Not a Box by Antoinette Portis here.

Antoinette has a new book out, Princess Super Kitty, that we’ll be reviewing soon as well!
