A Story Box is a collection of real objects and other items that correspond to the items mentioned in a story. These are gathered ahead of time and kept in a bag or a box, serving a similar function to illustrations in picture books. The items can be explored before a story is read and then referred while reading the book. Read more about Story Boxes.
