A great book about imagination. Extension activity: give children a ruler and say, "this is not a ruler, what is it?" This activity could be used with any object.

A very clever picture book about using your imagination. The theme is further emphasized by the use of brown paper and simple line drawings, as if the book was drawn on cardboard. Teachers will love this as an introduction to look at things differently.

This is a great book, the cover is actually made out of thick, cardboard. My group of senior kinders loved it because of its simplicity. As an educator I enjoyed it because it shows adults how to "look outside the box", using a child's creative thinking.

It's been proven. The box the Christmas toy comes with is always more popular than the toy.

Good little book about a bunny's adventures in a box, for lack of better words. Very short and was cute but didn't last very long and certainly doesn't have a lasting effect on my memory. This book didn't hold my attention for a very long time so it wasn't the most fantastic book, but it was good. Just good.
