While there are obviously plenty of squabbles at our house, they are even more magical moments that I wish I could record for later. Often it’s the little things that make my heart melt, like the kids performing a spontaneous drama show, singing a made-up song or listening to them create the most fabulous stories with their dolls. Imagination truly is a wonderful thing which is why this beautiful EK Books picture book really spoke to me:
The Incurable Imagination (RRP $24.99) we learn all about an infectious disease that is spread by a little girl called Audrey. Wherever she goes she infects others and soon the disease becomes unstoppable! Don’t worry, there is no vaccination needed when it comes to this condition. It is called ‘Imagination’ and my kids have it too!
From the moment Audrey was born it was clear that she was no ordinary baby. Her big imagination helps Audrey see things that others can’t, she dreams up the wildest creatures, exciting adventures and brightly coloured characters. Her teachers initially try to keep her in line, they want her to follow the rules and stick to the plans but Audrey’s imagination simply can not be stopped.
Soon enough her imagination reaches those around her and slowly others start experiencing the joy of imagination too. It puts smiles on faces and even those who try to resist are quickly falling under the magic spell. It turns out that suffering from imagination is very exciting, let’s help share it around.
You can find ‘The Incurable Imagination’ in leading book stores across Australia.
