About the Author:

Margarette "Marty" Reid was a teacher for many years and is the author of The Button Box,  A String of Beads and Lots and Lots of Coins. She died in 2015.

Sarah Chamberlain has illustrated books from Aesop’s Fables to Margarette Reid’s The Button Box. She studied under renowned printmakers and illustrators Barry Moser and Leonard Baskin, and from the 1970s to the 1980s ran the Chamberlain Press.

From School Library Journal:

The first two pages of this book are almost exciting. A boy narrator states he likes the contents of a special box at his grandmother's house. Turn the page and there is a box of buttons--no words--just buttons. Unfortunately, it's all downhill from there. The boy describes various buttons, telling what he imagines and knows about them--that some came from shoes or from his grandfather's pants. A brief history of buttons appears in the back. A story about buttons just isn't much of a story, and the grocery-store quality illustrations in dull, lifeless watercolors without detail or depth don't help. Even the layout is sloppy. --Denise Krell, New York Public Library
