Something to Do by David Lucas
If Harold and the Purple Crayon and Not a Box had a baby (and somehow bears got mixed up in it), it might be this book. Something to Do starts out with a little bear complaining that there's nothing to do. That prompts a journey into imagination that really captured my eye. The cover is quite striking and stood out on a crowded shelf; the minimal illustrations and text will give parents and children lots to talk about. A great book for children who love exploring and creating imaginary world - as well as those who often complain that there is nothing to do.
Find it at IndieBound.
