“Imagination is a very special gift that you can use to create anything you want.”George Yuhasz, Imagine That
This Children’s Book offers very important lessons that kids can carry with them for a lifetime.
On a night when the sky is full of stars, sometimes there appears light that cannot be explained, even by the smartest astronomers…
Evelyn is a little girl who lives with her parents and brother in a house with a big backyard. On nights when the sky is filled with brightly shining stars, she loves to go outside before bed to see the Milky Way and the Big Dipper and dream about the planets.
But Evelyn has a secret: She is able to see flashes of light streaking across the night sky that no one else can see. And she’ll soon learn that her secret is actually a wonderful gift!
This book honestly… was a pleasant and cute story. I honestly haven’t read a Children’s Book in quite some time so I definitely had to switch mindsets when reading Imagine That. The lesson of imagination is truly an important concept to introduce to children, especially when they are brought up in a very curriculum-based learning environment that can be chalk-full of rules and rigid structure.
The vocabulary and sentence structures, I felt, was a little bit advanced and kids with higher reading levels may get more out of it than any child under the age of 7. The use of scientific vocabulary like “constellation” and “astronomer” will definitely foster curiosity in young children to learn more about the subject, and, given the theme of the book, would allow them to think outside of the box while doing so.
I would totally recommend this book for older primary school children, and I truly believe that reinforcing the power of imagination in kids that age can help them become creative and innovative thinkers in the future.
Thank you to George Yuhasz for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
