Earlier this week, we received a giant box in the mail and inside was a tiny cello, not much larger than a viola. The box took up most of our living room, but before breaking it down, the girls decided to make a spaceship out of it. Complete with control panels, walkie-talkies and helmets. It trumped all other toys this weekend and almost prevented attendance at a birthday party. It reminded me of one of my favorite children’s books, “Not a Box”, by Antoinette Portis. Nothing like the combination of a weekend and a giant box!
