Mannie and the Long Brave Day by Martine Murray and Sally Rippin
This is a fun story to read aloud. The kids get excitied to see what she will pull out of the box next.
Thank You Bear by Greg Foley
A nice story with a sweet ending.
Meeow and the Big Box by Sebastien Braun
A short but fun read-aloud story. Its fun to guess what Meeow will do with the box next.
Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
Most of the kids had read this but they were all excited to read it again and yell out what was in each box.
Sitting in My Box by Dee Lillegard
Another good read-aloud. Its funny when all the giant animals squeeze into the box with the little boy.
Not a Box by Antoinette Portis
And another great box book. The little rabbit imagines his box becomes all sorts of cool new things.
You will need several boxes that nest inside of one another. In the last box put a small surprise for all the kids; stickers, sparkly stars, jewels etc.
Starting with the largest box...
Here is a box,
Let's open it wide,
And we'll find out,
1, 2, 3!
Open the box to reveal a smaller box, continue with the rhyme until you reach the box with the surprise!
