This fun picture book celebrates that wonderful ability children have for taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, not because they are striving to create an artwork but simply because they have found something that appeals to them and sparks their creativity.
I clearly remember the years when my own son had a ‘box collection’ in his room and I’m sure that there are many other parents and children who will relate to this boy and his love of boxes. Older children and parents will also appreciate the clever cover design, which has a very box-like appearance.
With fun illustrations and an enjoyable story, The Box Boy is a lovely reminder of the joy that children can find in simple things.
