PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

For children, potential is limitless, curiosity is an electrical current, and every moment is open to the possibility of the unexpected. Day-to-day life is filled with adventure. Road blocks are invitations to try new routes. And the world is vast and expansive. This book is a celebration of childhood through the crafts and activities that invite wonder and play. The twenty-five projects and activities in this book are meant to speak to the way children engage with the world. These projects are not about what is produced in the end (although that part is fun too) but rather they are stepping-off points—activities that spark curiosity, an adventure, or an investigation. They’re about the process of getting there. They’re about the conversations that happen while making things together. They’re about getting to know the world inch by inch. They’re about exploring imaginary universes and running through real forests. They’re about living in childhood . . . regardless of your actual age. They’re about being a kid.

“I have two responses to reading these pages: (1) I want to run directly to my toolbox and start making stuff, and (2) I want to run outside into the woods and spend hours playing. This book is a must have for every parent’s exploration toolkit!”—Keri Smith, author of How to Be an Explorer of the World and Wreck This Journal


“Reading Imagine Childhood was like finding a guidebook into the brilliant and vast galaxy of a child’s mind. The book is brimful of projects and springboards that help you nurture a creative, sensitive, and wonder-filled child in the best possible way.”—Sharon Lovejoy, author and illustrator of Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars and My First Bird Book & Feeder
