Fanatsic at enagaing a child's creativity and imagination
on 5 September 2012
I urge you to buy this brilliant book. It encourages children to think and feel and imagine and it really engages them, An example from this book would be 'Imagine being made differently...not really human at all" this suggestion is then followed by pictures of centaurs, lego men ghosts, drawings and jelly people. Lots to stir a child's imagination and help them think outside the box. I wondered what it would be like to be made of jelly too? Wibbly, cold and giggly I think.
I cannot tell you how much I ADORE this boook. I think both this and the first book YOU CHOOSE are brilliant they encourage children to interact with both the visual and the written word, they encourage them to be creative and use their natural resources and they enable stories to be created and worlds to be made.
Over a million copies of You Choose were sold and rightly so.I think these books should be in all KS1 classrooms and a mandatory read! Such fun. My five year old daughter sat for an hour with Just Imagine last night chatting to herself and imagining. How wonderful. If I knew their number I would call up the authors may self and say a great bIg WELL DONE. In a world of spoonfed entertainment you have encouraged a child to be creative and be entertained by their own minds. A great thing.
