a surreal and magical adventure for your child's imagination

Imagine a Day by Sarah L. Thomson, Illustrated by Rob Gonsalves

You can kind of get a taste for how amazing this book is by the front cover. Each illustration is some sort of fantastical imaginary scene that draws you in and demands a second look. 

While the subject matter is way above a two-year old's head, Juliet still enjoyed staring at the illustrations. An older child--maybe an 8 or 9 year old--would really love this book. The surreal images invite the reader to imagine a world where anything is possible. 

Each illustration is accompanied by text that begins, "Imagine a day..." Here are a few examples of what follows: 

"...when you can dive down through branches or swim up to the sun." 
"...when you forget how to fall." 
"...when we build a moat, not to keep strangers out, but to welcome them in." 

But my very favorite has to be this one: 

"Imagine a day...when a book swings open on silent hinges, and a place you've never seen before welcomes you home." 

That's the kind of day I like.
