Imagine by Norman Messenger

  • While this book is recommended for grades 3 - 5, all readers will find something in this book to spark their imagination (which is surely the point!!) The book presents a number of pictures, including "fantastical landscapes, faces and animals" and invites the reader to interact with them. How that interaction happens is up to the reader - but it could be used as an invitation to step outside the box - and a wonderful way to develop creativity. (02/2008)
