Maggie is currently obsessed with the book A Box Can Be Many Things by Dana Meachen Rau. She asks me to read to her at least twice a day – she loves the pictures, the story and most of all the imagination of the characters.
The book is about two children with big imaginations that turn an empty box into different things – a house, a car and more.
I had to practically beg the girls to come inside so I could start cooking dinner. We were out there for hours – all they wanted to do was play in that empty box. Their imagination was running wild and all I could do was laugh!
When I was a little kid, I had a huge refrigerator box that I played in for weeks. It was huge and I made it into a lot of things too. It’s fun turning nothing, into something… isn’t it?
I have a feeling that we’ll be spending a lot of time outside over the next few days and turning our box into a box of many things … just like the book!
