Kitchen cupboards are places of wonder and delight. Imagine, then, being a little one and having your very own plastics cupboard, full of things to bang and bake and sort and stack. How cool would that be? For one lucky kid, it is like a new adventure every day.
My Cool Plastics Cupboard is Australian parenting author Maggie Dent’s first picture book and is illustrated by Tasmanian-based illustrator Linda True-Arrow. It is a beautiful read for children 4 and under, and aims to remind parents everywhere that children don’t necessarily need expensive toys and gadgets and gizmos to be happy. Wonder and delight can be found in the most ordinary things.
