The book is about kids who enjoy the playfulness of their freedom. Soon their freedom is taken away due to so called bad behavior and they are confused. The adults who feel they must be controlled. That they should be placed inside a big box with all the things they love without contact with the outside world. It's sad yet the ending is beautiful once the kids decide to break the rules and conditions placed on them. The thing is and real unfortunate, that in life some kids are overly controlled and restricted by those who were once controlled as well.
Freedom and the sweet innocence of childhood should never be taken away.
A children's book written by Toni Morrison and illustrated by Giselle Potter
