Not A Box by Antoinette Portis

Daughter’s age when read: 3 yrs old

Danielle from There’s a Book suggested this one so I requested it from the library.  It’s a cute story about a rabbit using is imagination to come up with a variety of ways to play with a cardboard box.  This book was one of the first suggestions I looked up because my daughter loves boxes.  She has made houses, tunnels, boats and most recently has used our piles of moving boxes as her “stage” to perform on.  At first I did not think she enjoyed it because she did not say much during our first time through but she asked for it every night.  Now she can “read” it herself and cracks herself up.  This is due back to the library soon so I foresee us having to buy our own copy.

    Yay! I’m so happy to hear she loves this one! It’s one we’ve had for some time now and I think that’s because of the same problem you had. My son just HAD to have it. He’s 3 and a half now and has been reading the book for almost a year non-stop. That’s okay though, because it’s fantastic! So glad you’re enjoying it!
