“Imagine is definitely a candidate for a Caldecott Award! The illustrations are gorgeous! One page is the 'reality,' with a black-and-white illustration, and the next page is a bright, colorful imagination-filled take on what that 'reality' might become. The accompanying text inspires readers to imagine that the ordinary is actually extraordinary. This would also make a perfect gift for a new graduate, as it carries the message that no dream is too big.”

Description

Add some wonder to daily routines with this vividly illustrated, inspirational picture book featuring a new cover and trim size.

"If you can imagine things aren't quite what they seem, and dream of possibilities that only you can dream of, then anything can happen...."

So begins this inspiring, poetic book, a celebration of the wonder and innocence of childhood. In a playful back-and-forth, Imagine asks you to envision everyday events as wondrous and magical occurrences. The ordinary scenes of childhood are illustrated in luxurious black-and-white, while the magical settings are in full, vibrant color. With just a twist of the imagination, a little girl looking at a toy dancer becomes a prima ballerina, a boy crossing a log becomes a tightrope walker, and a simple tree house becomes a grand castle.

Endless possibilities and creative explorations await. You only have to Imagine.
