Synopsis

Just Imagine by Pippa Goodhart

Just imagine what it would be like to be as small as a mouse; or as big as a house. Imagine exploring the depths of the ocean, travelling into the past or the future - or something even stranger...This wonderfully inventive and interactive book allows a child to tell their own story, combining new elements each time. And with intricately detailed illustrations for parent and child to pore over together, this really is a book to share time and time again.

This book will stretch the imagination and vocabulary of children while inviting them to dream and aspire, proving to be a valuable resource in both home and classroom.

The illustrations by Nick Sharratt are full of intricate detail which offers another level for the imagination to explore. An exciting concept with boundless applications. Try using it as an inspiration for creative writing - it would work brilliantly in the classroom for this. Totally fascinating. Parents in Touch I cannot tell you how much I ADORE these two books [JUST IMAGINE and YOU CHOOSE]. I think they are brilliant - they encourage children to interact with both the visual and the written word, they encourage them to be creative and use their natural resources and they enable stories to be created and worlds to be made. Book Reviews for Mums I liked it a lot. The main thing I liked about it is that it really gets your imagination going. There are some really funny bits and some strange bits and all sorts of different bits. Also it had quite a nice ending to it. And also instead of telling you it should be like this or it happens like that you choose for yourself. It could be for quite young people and would be good for kids who've just learning to read - it is mainly pictures - but it's still quite nice for older people like me. -- Daisy (8 years old) An Awfully Big Blog Adventure Let your child's imagination soar with this inspirational book! ...The illustrations by Nick Sharratt are full of intricate detail which offers another level for the imagination to explore.
