What turns problems into opportunities, questions into passions, and keeps us company? Our imagination! We all have it and can use it in infinite ways. Books are the perfect exercise equipment for strengthening our imaginations!
Wish you could have an adventure but have to stay inside? How about creating a new environment—with blocks, or a dragon? Feeling lonely, worried, or scared, and wish you had a best friend who is always there, just for you? Make one up! Or borrow Ted, or Bear.
Stories about imagination—making things, pretending, seeing one thing as something else—incentivize children to rely on their creativity to persevere through all kinds of changing circumstances, and to become future innovators. We invite you to explore these themes in the books spotlighted below!
