The Color Box by Dayle Ann Dodds
I thought this book might be too short/young for this group but they really liked it. They were fascinated by the different worlds the box led too and many wanted to incorporate the story into their craft at the end.
My Snake Blake by Randy Siegel
Kind of a stretch calling this a box story but the snake does come in a box so it made the cut.
Bridget Fidget and the Most Perfect Pet by Joe Berger
I like this story. It has a little suspense as we wait to find out what's in the box and a pretty good payoff when we find out it's a cuckoo clock.
Mannie and the Long Brave Day by Martine Murray and Sally Rippin
Definitely a little young for this group but they liked it all the same. It's a sweet little story and the kids appreciated it.
