Picture Books That Spark Imagination In Young Children

Books brought magical joy to my childhood. I could go to places where animals talked, friends were easy to make, and adventures could be found by turning a page. I believe a love of reading is one of the greatest gifts adults can foster in their children. My hope is that these three books will spark your child’s imagination, and he or she will find the magical joy that comes from turning the page.


Hide and Seek with the Moon

This is the story of Alice, her stuffed animals, and her dog as they search for the moon. Why does it shine in her window on some nights, and then disappear at other times? This book is written in rhyme and perfect to read to toddlers.

As a bonus, Heart of a Kitty is included in the paperback of Hide and Seek with the Moon.
