Opening and Brief Synopsis: Why are you sitting in a box? It's not a box. What are you doing on top of that box? It's not a box! Little bunny is constantly being asked what he is dong with his box. He continuously explains that it is not a box, but many, many other things.
Why I Chose This Book: In my house, the laundry basket is often the "not the laundry basket" and becomes a car, train, tent, or table. This story speaks to the unlimited imagination of children, and I love it.
