Alice McLerran’s Roxaboxen is another treasure from my childhood. It’s about a town (called Roxaboxen) that a group of children create with rocks and boxes behind their neighborhood.
The best part about this book to me is that it is a true story. Alice McLerran’s mother was one of the children that played in the real Roxaboxen.
Roxaboxen inspired many hours of creative play in the fields and woods behind our house growing up.
I recently found a copy of this book for our family, and Brontë has been asking if she could make a town like Roxaboxen.
Looks like the tradition of Roxaboxen will continue.
Interested in picking up your own copy of Roxaboxen? If you buy it through our link, it will not cost you any extra, but it will help us out.
