Editorial Reviews

Review

Appropriate for all ages, 5-12, Imagine This! is not only a great read-aloud selection, it's also a wonderful choice for early or reluctant readers. Like the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh, the Places You Will Go!, this is a fun and faced-paced keepsake book, designed to jump-start young imaginations and inspire self-confidence. --From the Publisher

From the Publisher

The poems and illustrations of Imagine This! captivate children's imaginations with vivid imagery and active adventure. It's a unique approach, contemporary, yet also comfortable and familiar.

Format: Hardcover
Written by Joanne Froh, Imagine This is a collection of short, rhyming poems for young readers, illustrated in exquisite detail with black-and-white ink drawings by artist Frances Plagens. Emphasizing the power of creativity, Imagine This is a lyrical adventure through the realms and stories of the mind. "The Dark": Tap tap // What was that? / Straight up in bed I sat / Eyes wide open peering, listening / Listening for something nearing. / Something creeping down the hall? / Its shadow cast upon the wall?

Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for Reader Views (11/06)

"Imagine This!" reaches into our daydreams and fantasies and brings them to light.
Imagine my delight when "Imagine This!" arrived at my home. I remember well a cardboard box playhouse, making mud pies, pretending that my stuffed animals were my loyal subjects and that my swing was my throne. The branches of a weeping willow were my hideout for many lazy summer days. My favorite is "Tissued Wings"

Tissued Wings
I dream of a sylvan fairy glade
Where only I can go
Flickering with golden dappled shade
And dew wet grass aglow.

I dream of the silver radiance
Of tiny tissued wings
On fairies doing their mystic dance
around the toadstool rings.

And if I find they're but dragonflies
Darting from weed to weed
Should I believe only in my eyes
Or go where dreams can lead?

Joanne Froh has dipped deep into the recesses of our minds and fished out childhood memories and put them in lyrical form. She has done so with great finesse. The illustrations add to each poem, expressing it in a visual manner. This is not a book for children! This is a book for all ages. Children will love the poems but adults will savor the memories the poems bring to the surface. My grandchildren love this book and eagerly bring it too me for story time. It is with great honor that I highly recommend this "Imagine This!" Well-done Ms. Froh and Ms.Plagens (illustrator.)

Book received free of charge.

Did you ever dream of flying? Do you remember when a cardboard box was a castle? The intricate illustrations and lyrical prose in "Imagine This" will take grownups back to the days when imagination and make-believe could fill a summer day and inspire children to find the magic in the world around them.

Who hasn't imagined a stuffed animal coming to life? This book is filled with wonder for both boys and girls. And the illustrations are inspiring as well.
