Sometimes it's hard to be a younger brother and watch your older sister get everything she needs to start school -- especially when what you want most is to have a bright, shiny new lunch box just like hers. And it doesn't matter if you're still not old enough to go to school -- a lunch box is the perfect place to keep dozens of things besides food.

In a wonderful and imaginative collaboration of talents, Jeannette Caines and Pat Cummings have teamed up to create a delightful fantasy about one boy's dream of having a lunch box of his own.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1 A black girl is beginning first grade and getting all sorts of goodies, in particular a lunch box for which her little brother yearns with a single-minded passion. However, his mother says that he must wait until he starts school. This rather slim plot is fleshed out through a sequence in which the narrator dreams of a brightly-colored, imaginatively-shaped lunch box for each weekday. At last, on his sister's first day of school, their father surprises the boy with a spaceship lunch box of his own. Brightly patterned objects such as shoes, school supplies, marbles, animals, and of course decorated lunch boxes float through the vividly-colored pages. The simple text makes the story suitable for preschoolers. The drama of family relationships is honestly portrayed, although the issue of whether the father has contradicted the mother, which may bother some parents, is buried in the happy ending.
