Jane Yolen and Chris Sheban
We are massive box fans at Bear Hunt Books and was very excited to add this lovely book to our collections. You can read and use the book as an inspiration of what to do with your own boxes. The possibilities are endless. I am writing this as a person that has actually delivered a whole session with the Cubs I help at with just boxes, pens and masking tape.
About the Book
If you give a child a box, who can tell what will happen next? It may become a library or a boat. It could set the scene for a fairy tale or a wild expedition. The most wonderful thing is its seemingly endless capacity for magical adventure, a feature imaginatively captured in cardboardesque art by Chris Sheban and rhythmically celebrated in this poetic tribute by renowned children's author Jane Yolen.
