Booklist Review: "Gr. 1^-2, younger for reading aloud. After a mother hauls a big box to the garbage, her two children rescue it. First they pretend that the box is a bear's cave, then a car, then a house, then a cage. After they rip parts away to make windows and bars, the box really does look like junk, but they soon discover uses for the torn-out pieces as well. From the Rookie Reader series, this book carries just a few simple words on each page, but children will find the story satisfying just the same. Varying between scenes of reality and scenes of the children's fantasies, the illustrations feature expressive lines and cheerful colors. A solid addition to collections for young readers, this little book will appeal to imaginative preschoolers as well. --Carolyn Phelan"
