An excerpt from the book reads: Imagination brings us together, stories, treasure hunts, travel, and laughter. There is no limit to all we can see. One idea will lead to another. Just imagine the places we will visit, all the more fun because we're together. So here we go! This book is a celebration of imagination and creativity all centred in one's own brain. It's a call to our kids to put down their technology and wake up their brains for playtime. When it's awake they can then design fun personal adventures all on their own. But wait? Imagination is bigger and better if friends play along too right? This tale stars four friends: 2 bears, 1 moose and one bluebird. They strap on backpacks chucked full of props and follow a map they find. They interact and share ideas creating life-long memories together. They imagine they are dastardly pirates, float away on a boat discovering magnificent waterfalls and tucked-away mountain towns, fly high in a hot air balloon, find precious hidden gems as they go on a rock hunt, get muddy and dirty slinging mud at each other, ( love to do that one myself ) and excavate for tailbones and skulls of new undiscovered dinosaurs, just to name a few. All these scenarios take place right in their own backyard which is a wonderful bonus. The illustrations by Stephen Adams are truly beautiful and bring a strong visual component to the text. They are full of action and colour and invite the reader along for the ride. Kids just fall right into the scene. They join in the adventures experiencing that imagination truly is bigger together. Hopefully the book will inspire kids to enjoy the magic of their imaginations and get them outdoors involved in creative, imaginative play with friends. This is Casey Rislov's fourth picture book. All of her books are amazing. I highly, highly recommend "Imagination Bigger Together".
Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite It’s time for some excitement and a grand adventure. But you don’t need some high tech gizmo to entertain. All you need is your good, old fashioned imagination, the one that works well on its own, without batteries or apps. You can become a pirate and sail the high seas to distant lands to find awesome treasures. Or, how about a mystery happening right next door in the very interesting secret garden? Or you could create your own band and make loud music and start up your own circus of sorts. Or there’s the wonders of the sky at night, the constellations and, of course, the bugs. But even the bugs can be fascinating if you want to think of it as another part of the adventure. It’s all there to enjoy. Just dig really deep into your own imagination. Casey Rislov’s picture book story, Imagination Bigger Together, is packed with fun ideas that even the best high tech device can’t offer. Beware, though, it may include getting dirty! But that’s okay, because that’s what it means to be a child. Using the imagination is an important tool and if we don’t allow and encourage our young people today to use their imaginations, then how will great minds create great inventions in the future? This is a wonderfully told in free form verse and colorfully illustrated storybook to appeal to young readers and encourage them to use their own imaginations to create adventures like no other. The great outdoors is full of fun and adventure and ideas to spark the imagination. Well done!
