    Promoting imagination in children...

    Reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite

    This book is definitely intended for little girls, with the use of colors like pink, purple, yellow, and light green looming out from the cover illustrations. The illustrator, Julie Ross, created a dreamy image of a little girl lost in imagination. Each image matches the words described in the verses of the book.

    Promoting imagination in children is always a good theme, which is what author Dr. Karen Hutchins Pirnot does in The Door in the Floor. She writes about a little girl playing in her swing set/gym set in the backyard and pretending that, when she goes through the door in the floor, she finds towers and adventures. It's good to encourage children to flex their creative muscles as part of their play time.

    The book started out with rhyming lines along a rhythm of words, but it lost that cadence and rhythm about halfway through the book. What I've learned from reading children's rhyming books is that you need to read them aloud in order to hear and feel the intended rhythm of the book.

    The back cover of the book didn't include any indication as to what age group this book is intended to entertain. Depending upon the intended audience/reader, some of the words used in the book might have been too big for younger readers to comprehend.

    Overall, it's a cute, short book that young readers, especially little girls, will enjoy. Cute pastel illustrations enhance this book.
