can you name the book?
(disclaimer: beginner food “artist” … sorry book illustrator!)
… and the title is:
i love reading children’s books and this is one is a keeper – for both babies, children and adults. it is so relatable in many ways – from babies loving to play with boxes instead of toys … to children (and adults) learning to think outside of the box.
i introduced this book to k early, even before she could recognize “bunnies!” even then, she enjoyed hearing “IT IS NOT A BOX!” she would watch us as we explain the pictures of how it is not a box! after she started recognizing some of the imaginative pictures, she would call out the images — “cars! rab-bot!, boat!” — and clearly each are not a box!
i personally loves this book. from it’s imagination to it’s cute little bunny. anyone who picks up this book is sure to get something wonderful out of it!
