Storytime: Not a Box by Antoinette Portis

Not a Box by Antoinette Portis is both delightful and inspiring. This simple story and illustrations ground us in being attentive to how children think. The line drawings suggest possibilities of what a child might imagine in vivid unconventional colours and details. The main character in this story belongs to all cultures, genders and abilities.

In this course you will have the chance to think inside and outside of the box about children’s literacy. We will begin our exploration of what literacy is by taking a journey along the path blazed by the story character in this short but powerful children’s book Not a Box.
