The first installment in a new educational activities series designed to help children expand their creativity and improve their reading and language skills, Reading is Fun! Imagine That! is a collection of children’s story-poems that encourage children to respond by creating artworks and writings using their own ideas. There are two story-poems on each of six topics: Art Activities, Construction Activities, Creative and Imaginative Thinking, Decision Making, Planning Ahead, and Self-Awareness. Following each set of three story-poems, there are two educational pages with topics such as “Our Amazing Memories” and “The Wonder of Words.” Curiosity, imagination, positive views, and personal abilities are encouraged. This material is ideal for use at home, school, club groups, summer camps, and for learning English as a second language.
