One Little BagOne Little Bag: An Amazing Journey by Henry Cole, illustrated by Henry Cole. 2020. Micron Ink Pens. Published by Scholastic Press.

Brief summary: This story without words is illustrated in black and white with the color brown emphasizing the bag as it begins as a tree log being chipped, rolled, and made into a paper bag. Young readers follow a boy and his bag. The bag has a heart added and used as a lunch bag and continues in the growing milestones of the boy gathering more hearts inscriptions as it ages three generations.

Comments: Wow. That is certainly one well-made paper bag. Students could talk about all of the uses they could have with a paper bag. Ask why this bag was saved and reused.
