Imagine, book review

imagine

Title: Imagine
by: Emma Mactaggart
illustrated by: Ester De Boer
Publisher: Boogie Books

The gloriously creative indulgence of simply sitting and day-dreaming has given rise to the greatest creations in human history! We have to give ourselves permission to do so, and to Imagine what will be. Of course, sometimes, ‘what will be’ may be very silly indeed!

Imagination. Where would the world be if we couldn’t imagine?

Author, Emma Mactaggart, has written a wonderfully inspiring picture book encouraging children to use their imagination.

The rhyming tale will have children in laughter as the story topsy-turvies common household objects with animals.

Imagine is filled will brilliant illustrations by Ester De Boer. Her use of colour and action propels the story along with energy.

I love the words at the ending of the story –

Now promise me, open you mind and let your thoughts soar.
It’s your imagination, let it rip, let it roar!

What a wonderful challenge for children, and a perfect book for use in the school setting to introduce a creative writing lesson.

Author, Emma Mactaggart, has built the tale of Lily with delight. It is the type of story that will have children heading to their dress up box to play, and the story will take grown-ups back into their own memories of carefree childhood days.

Illustrator, Ester De Boer, has created illustrations that make you want to jump into the pictures to live where Lily lives. The illustrations radiate happiness and fun, and Ester’s use of colour to create the mood of the story is highly effective.6507065_orig

Lily Fabourama Glamourama is a wonderful, feel good book to read to children. It is about kindness, acceptance and the love of three generations of women. It is the perfect book to read for dress-up days, and a go to book to read for Grandparents’ Day.
