Sometimes it's hard to be a younger brother and watch your older sister get everything she needs to start school — especially when what you want most is to have a bright, shiny new lunch box just like hers. And it doesn't matter if you're still not old enough to go to school — a lunch box is the perfect place to keep dozens of things besides food.

In a wonderful and imaginative collaboration of talents, Jeannette Caines and Pat Cummings have teamed up to create a delightful fantasy about one boy's dream of having a lunch box of his own.

This book can really get children excited for going to school with the older kids. They get to have all kinds of new, cool school supplies, but they also don't have to be going to school yet to start learning and start collecting school supplies. I think this would be a good book for parents to read to their children when they have older siblings going to school. It shows that one day, they too can go to school and have cool pencils and erasers and put their lunch box to good use!
