about

"Simple toys are best, and when they're done as well as this, simple books as well."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

An imaginative little boy explores the many pleasures that can be found in—and made from—his grandmother's button box.

NCSS-CBC Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies


"Chamberlain's bold linoleum cuts, with gentle color added, portray the buttons in loving detail and give the book an appropriately old-fashioned flavor."—Kirkus Reviews

"Besides inspiring some flights of fancy for readers, the book will suggest many uses to parents and librarians for games, history lessons, and puppetry."—Booklist
