This was one of my favorites as a girl, and now my 3-year old son loves it too! He has an active imagination and just feeds off of great books like this. We had a new refrigerator delivered this year and my son was so excited to turn the box into a castle like "Christina Scatterina" (as he pronounces it). When I looked for the book on Amazon I was elated to find that there is a whole series of Christina books that I never knew about!

This book was so special to me as a little girl and I am now reading my worn out copy to my 3-year-old son, who loves it too! This year we had a new refrigerator delivered and my son couldn't wait to turn the huge box into a castle like "Christina Scatterina" (as he pronounces it). This is a must-have for your child if they love exploring their imagination. I went on Amazon to see about getting a new copy and was surprised to find that there is a whole series of Christina books!

Christina Katerina and the Box speaks right to the heart of those wonderful creative and imaginative moments that come so naturally for children. It is these very moments and experiences that we must continue to encourage, inspire, and preserve despite a growing technical society in which easy-access and instant gratification are too often the substitutes for creativity and imaginative spirit. Gauch and Burn have reminded us of these valuable things, and hopefully this book will continue to inspire children to make a world out of a cardboard box!

Christina Katerina and The Box was a favorite of my son twenty years ago. Now that my grandson enjoys books, I wanted to share his uncle's favorite book with him. I was pleased to find it readily available on amazon. It is a book that stretches a child's imagination. Your children will want to read it over and over again.

As a girl I loved this book as much as she loves her box. For years I have been trying to locate a copy without success until today. I have 4 daughters who have heard of this story through me, now they will be able to read the story themselves.

I bought this for my second grader because it was my favorite book when I was in the first grade. I have been looking for it for a while, but couldn't find it. It shows what a little imagination can do. I loved it as a child, and my daughter loved it as well. She has an active imagination anyway, but since reading the story, she has found 'new' inspiration. I highly recomend this book to help get children interested in reading. I liked that it had wonderful illustrations to follow the storyline as well. It has enough pictures to help clue the reader for beginning readers with a nice plot to help encourage knowledge about the characteristics of stories. Nice teaching tool for first and second grade students with lots of 'hands on' projects that could be introduced as group activities.

You know how it is, buy a terrific toy for a child and they play with the box.

Christina Katerina has a box but it is not just any box, this box becomes all kinds of wonderful things for her, a house, a car, a boat. Christina Katerina is a sweet, daring and scruffy little girl who makes her adventures seem real. This one box provides countless hours of adventure.

The illustrations are so endearing and capture Christina Katerina's personality so well that you forget the pictures in the book are colored in only three colors.

And just when you think that box is destined for the trash can, Christina Katerina has another clever idea for it.
