It's no secret that we are big fans of Keri Smith around here. Shortly after we started the Imagine Childhood shop and blog we received a hand wrapped package with a million tiny stamps on it and a beautiful book inside. It was love at first sight and we've been smitten ever since. Filled with open ended prompts that challenge you to use your imagination and creativity to explore all the magic this world has to offer, her books are inspiring, insightful, and exquisitely playful. So, when I received Keri Smith's most recent book in the mail, it was no surprise that it quickly became one of my new favorites.
Focused on a most beloved topic - the imagination - this book asks you to create an imaginary world of your own and challenges you to do it with a sense of adventure and hope. Each page is filled with prompts and activities that call on your creativity to unlock something new and magical. . .
. . . from the things you can see. . .
. . . to the ones you can't. . .
. . . to the things you can share . . .
. . . this world is all your own so. . .
. . . build it with care.
