This book is a visual treat! The stories are fun adventures about two brothers imaging exciting journeys in a big cardboard box. The stories are interesting in spite of being constructed with easy to read words for new readers. But the pictures make the book! My new reader would pause his reading frequently to take in all of the cute details of the pictures. I love all of these level 1-2 stories–they are giving my new reader so many exciting options for good and beautiful books to read while he’s still just learning.

I was pleasantly surprised at the contents of this book. The title and cover give nothing away as to what this story is about. I love how it encourages kids to use their imagination when they’re bored. So amazing adventures they can have!

My kids really liked this book. Nothing like a box and some craft supplies to cure boredom! The illustrations are as good as the story.

I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this book! Both of my kids have HUGE imaginations. We live out in the woods and every day they go outside from nearly sun up to sun down and all they do is play pretend. This book resonated with all of us perfectly as a simple cardboard box becomes a spaceship, a train, a mobile restaurant, a race car, a reading nook, etc at our house. Imagination play is so important and really builds character.

We seriously loved this cute book. My kids could totally relate to Ted and Tom as they went on their many imaginative adventures! We love to play pretend, so this was such a fun read. The illustrations are beautiful and the book is very high quality.

With the help of some cardboard boxes and other supplies, brothers Ted and Tom embark on wonderful adventures, racing down frozen hills and fighting for survival on a roaring sea. Join the brothers in these two delightful tales to be reminded that a little imagination goes a long way.
