Imagine We Were
By Renee Bennett
We took a walk on the wild side this week…
…at Taronga Zoo
“You’re special to me”
Imagine We Were is a gorgeous children’s book that promotes the bond of mother and child love – in a cute, fun way that small children adore!
Imagine We Were tells the story of a mother and child playfully pondering what it would be like if they were different mother and baby animals – cats, dogs, cows, chickens…and all of them up to little-kid-loving mischief!
Most importantly, each little tale is reinforced with a strong, mother-to-child loving message…
“you’re special to me” “you’re brilliant to me” “you’re lovely to me”
With Imagine We Were’s lovely peaceful dialogue, and accompanying pastel-coloured illustrations of cute animals and skies filled with puffy animal-shaped clouds (by the talented Claire Richards), this story is a delight to share with young children, and is bound to become a stand-out bedtime favourite.
Above all, let’s face it – any story encouraging a mother and child hug at the end is sure-fire winner with both mums and kids!
