    One thought on “Not a Stick”

    1. I used to pretend all sorts of stuff when I was little Fortress out of Construx, plastic bag as parachute, all the standard stuff I distinctly remember trying out that last one with a leap off the top of the swing set Needless to say, I didn t give that a second attempt Imagination was a big part of my life With Not a Stick , Antoinette Portis follows the pro imagination blueprint of 2006 s Not a Box , creating a worthy follow up.The book kinda goes like this an off camera narrator mentions some [...]

    2. Be honest How many of you folks out there routinely check closets for a secret passage to Narnia Be honest Okay, just me That s okay too Well, how many of you love letting your imagination run wild Or, if you don t do so now, can you at least remember how exhilerating it was to be little When pretending felt SO real and SO fun This book is about just that It is a sheer delight to read to pre schoolers as they try to conjure up potential scenarios the main character a pig, I think could imagine h [...]

    3. I liked this one even than Not a Box This book captures so well children s imaginative play I remember playing like this I ve observed many, many children playing like this The ending doesn t quite live up to the rest of the book text wise but the illustrations work perfectly throughout I do wonder whether nostalgic adults might enjoy this book than children will though.

    4. The other day my kids were playing with pretzel sticks, trying to get their siblings to guess what they were imagining their sticks to be airplanes, horses, etc I listened to their play, and then pulled out this book to read to them I wondered if they would follow the sparse text, but they didn t need any prompting to understand the subtle story of Pig and his everything stick They loved turning each page to see what the stick would be next, trying to anticipate the evolution of Pig s creativity [...]

    5. Sorry to see there were not stickers in it I hate to be a stickler about it Except my library copy was a bit sticky Sorry to be a stick in the mud but a book shouldn t be sticky without stickers But this is a book that ll stick around for sure.Stick.

    6. Super cute book that encourages imagination The illustrations are my favorite kind From the very first page as in before the actual story even starts I was in love with this little pig On th epage with the dedication you can see him reaching for his stick and it s such a sweet innocent lovely little picture How can you not love this book We read it a lot before deciding to return it to the library I d definitely check it out again.

    7. Not A Stick is a little gem of a picture book The entire book is about 75 words and illustrated primarily with line drawings The story revolves around our unnamed main character who is a young pig He is continually being questioned about the stick he is carrying why is he carrying it, be careful with it, etc Throughout the story our hero emphatically denies that what he is holding is a stick The illustrations for each of his responses reveal that the stick is alternately a fishing pole, a drum m [...]

    8. A follow up book to Not a Box.This follow up book has all the problems of the original basically an inability to find a satisfactory climax to the book , without many of its redeeming features.They ve attempted to bring across the design elements this book s cover looks like a plank of wood Of course a stick doesn t actually look like a neatly cut plank of wood at all And the original s cover actually felt like a cardboard box this version s cover feels like a book cover.The ability to see the o [...]

    9. Not A Stick by Antionette Portis is in the same tradition as the predecessor, Not a box A little pig is imagining with a stick His adult continues to call it a stick when the little pig tries to explain that it is not a stick His imagination turns it into everything from a paintbrush to a sword to tackle a dragon This is an excellent early story book especially good for 2 3 year olds with short attention spans because there is little text per page It can lead the discussion about pretending Sinc [...]

    10. I am a fan of Antoinette Portis books NOT A STICK is cleverly designed The illustrations and text are ridiculously simple that I can t help but love it In just a few words, Antoinette manages to bring the MC s imagination to life The dialogue that occurs is genuine The fact that the MC is a pig is also very funny I love the layout and the pacing of the book The square shaped book also has a quality that I love It s simplistic design gives way for big ideas and imagination that the book provides [...]

    11. I love this book Antoinette Portis is amazing and I love how she is promoting imagination and creativity heavily throughout this book I think that this is an excellent tool to use in the classroom, so that students can see that teachers value creativity and that their thoughts and imaginations are important to their learning process Great book indeed

    12. Not a Stick, another title from the imaginative Portis, about imagination a stick, and a sheep The adult words are on a tan background, whensheep is thinking it is a white background and the imagined uses of the stick on a blue background The cover has a wood grain effect Overall a graphic delight and I like this one a little than, Not a Box.

    13. Just like Not a Box only using a stick This would be great for text to text comparison within the class, but also to inspire creativity by giving children their own stick to get creative with They could then do a show and share with their creations Endless lesson potential to assess in all domains

    14. 29 months We picked this one up after really enjoying Not a Box This is the same concept but wasn t quite as well received by O as the box story which she completely loved We probably just need to pick up sticks on our hikes and park walks D

    15. Aria 5 really liked this book and guessing what was next Only complaint is we would have liked it to be longer

    16. Yup, it s a redo of Not A Box , only with a stick But considering the message of using your imagination rather than buying a fancy toy, it s a message worth repeating.

    17. While this was a cute book, I prefer Not a Box Like Not a Box, I feel like little kids would like this book Since the book was written for that audience, it does its job I appreciate that it shows kids how to use their imagination and have adventures with everyday objects You don t need a screen or something that required batteries to have fun.Author Antoinette PortisPublisher HarperCollinsPublication Date 2007

    18. Of course, a stick is never just a stick either See my review for the first book Not a Box My son was disappointed a mechanical weapon used to fight the bad guys was not a choice we see the little pig explore, but as a mom, that was fine by me An adorable read that reminds me of the illustrations and imagination inHarold and the Purple Crayon.

    19. Like the book Not a Box , I love the imagination that is sparked in this book A great way to connect with kids I also love the pictures that turn this not stick in a great creation Also as an adult this is a reminder that imagination is important and we should not limit this from out students and children Grade level k 2Genre modern fantasy

    20. Antoinette Portis again captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it becomes real With a stick in hand, the options are endless whether it s conducting an orchestra, painting a masterpiece, or slaying a dragon give a child a stick and let imagination take over and the magic begin.

    21. Cute and encourages imagination, but also seems to say that adults do not encourage imagination, which I dislike Could be good for a storytime, but it s short Good overall.
