Deliberately using our imagination to help co-create the life we desire is a fundamental skill-set that is underutilized by the majority of the population. While many authors are brilliantly expanding this knowledge in adults, there are very few books that sow this concept in the roots of the future – our children. Imagine That! explores the creative and fertile ground of the mind and helps children put in place a process for developing ideas from thought to reality.
Imagination is a universally appealing topic and a skill that needs to be cultivated in our children. With the help of Imagine That!, parents will have a fun way to educate their children about growing their ideas into reality. This book explores the similarity between bringing ideas to life and the process of growing seeds into plants. The concept of planting an idea seed is delivered in a simple, playful rhyme and the illustrations that accompany each verse visually reinforce the steps. Useful concepts are discussed such as clearing the mind of negative thoughts, taking action toward your end result, focusing on joy and gratitude, and learning to ignore the “bugs” that may not want you to succeed.
The back pages of the book are designed to be used as a discussion generator between parents and kids. All 9 verses of the metaphorical rhyme are expanded upon to help children understand how to apply the concepts.
Grab your copy of Imagine That! and help your child understand how important the lost art of imagination really is. I hope your kids (and you) enjoy the book and I thank you for imagining a better world!
