Packed with rhythm and rhyme, Imagine This! is an enchanting collection of original poems that celebrate childhood daydreams and games of make-believe. From wishing you could fly, to finding lost treasure, each adventurous tale is brought to life with a captivating verse and an elaborate pen & ink illustration reminiscent of a classical etching. A great book to read aloud, Imagine This! teaches important life lessons, such as believing in yourself and the power of positive thinking. A perfect choice for young readers, Imagine This! is especially popular among children with active imaginations who immediately recognize their own musings and creative play: A box is not a box If you can climb inside Put the door on the floor Cut a window in the side. A castle? A cave? A great place to hide? Whatever it is It's your to decide...

I know it says this book is for age 4+ but I really don't think kids that age would get it. I got this book for my birthday, and I'm 10.

A lot of the poems are for older kids because they talk about thoughts we have like wanting to do our own thing instead of what people tell us. My favorite poem is called "Rope Swing" and it goes like this...

In the playground, at my school
There's a swing, and there's a rule
No standing in the seat
It's for your bottom, not your feet.
That's why I say
I'd rather play
On a rope, hung in a tree
So I can swing, wild and free
Swing like a chimpanzee.

With a rope, unlike chain
There's no one-way, no refrain
I can stand and swing tall
Or scrunch down and swing in a ball
Go left, right, twirl around
Faster, higher above the ground.

And if I run with all my might
I'm like a bird, taking flight
Defying gravity
Looking down on scenery
That's when it seems
That all my dreams
Can come -- will come true
A preview
of what's to be
It's all a possibility.
