The Secret Box by Barbara Lehman - OPTIONAL

Lehman, Barbara The Secret Box. Houghton Mifflin, 2011. $16. 48 pgs. PICTURE BOOK. In this wordless picture book, a young boy from long ago hides a box under a loose floorboard. Over the years, the landscape surrounding the house changes, as does the purpose of the house in which he lived. Decades later several children discover the box and follow the enclosed map to Seahorse Pier. Lovely illustrations and a nice concept, but children may have difficulty following the story. EL-OPTIONAL. Caryn
