Bookbug Book of the Month: Box

Box by Min Flyte and Rosalind Beardshaw

ISBN: 9780857634146


When four toddlers find some toys in cardboard boxes, they have fun with them for a while. But, before long, the friends’ interest in the toys wanes and their attention turns to the boxes themselves. What could they do with SO many boxes, they wonder? An inspiring and charming novelty book celebrating the creative possibilities and limitless joy of boxes.


'What can you do with a box? Rip it up and make cardboard confetti? Fall asleep in one and have a nap in the corner? Well you can do all those things and even more! There is so much fun to be had with this book – let your imagination run riot with all the sorts of things that can be in a box – maybe a blanket, a drum, or a scooter! And can you make it into something? How about a sailboat, a castle, or even a rocket! Children will love the lift the flap element and will be eager to find out what happens next. This is a lovely book to read aloud and the beautiful illustrations perfectly capture the joy of using your imagination.'

- Emma Dunn, Early Years Operations Administrator
