Carrie wished her Grandma was there. She went to the computer and clicked on Grandma's picture but she didn't answer. She took her favorite book to her mom, wishing she would read her a story but Mom was not there. Carrie went to the yard to look for Dad and she saw her parents pulling out weeds in the garden. She went back inside but she didn't want to read or bounce the ball. Carrie decided to go to the closet and open one of the four boxes her Grandma had left there. Carrie looked at the box marked 'Fascinator' and she had a feeling it would contain something different and unique. She took it to her room, put it on her bed, and closed the door. What happened when she took out the tiny golden glistening ship which was a hat and wore it?

The Round Box (Grandma's Closet Book 2) by Lois Wickstrom is a rollicking story that will take young readers on a wonderful adventure with Carrie as her bed began to rock like a boat on the ocean. Everything around her glittered and moved in slow motion. Her parents entered her room and when her mom read the story, the characters spoke to her and they all felt as if Grandma was in the room with them because Carrie was wearing her Grandma's fascinator. Francie Mion's illustrations add magic to the story and the adventure and make it vivid for young readers. The Round Box is a beautiful book that captures the bonding between grandparents and grandchildren and the author's approach to the topic is fresh and unique. It is a good book for parents and tutors to use for storytelling sessions to entertain youngsters with some adventure and magic.
