I can see how lovers of art for art's sake will find this book both charming and creative. So I'll give it FIVE STARS. If you think letting kids get away with disrespectful behavior is a cute thing to do now, when raising a child? I have news for you. However, my difficulty, as a child was that I felt I could never achieve the brilliance of this poet. In many ways it was a top-down approach to learning about metaphor, beginning with the finest examples and then, me and the rest of the class trying desperately hard to mimic at a sub-standard level the concept in our own writing.

Ones that spring to mind include:This fashionably simple book has Rabbit encouraging young children to explore imaginary worlds whilst sitting in a cardboard box – on land or water or up into space. Great fun.” Carousel A fantastic independent or read-aloud, this book will challenge the imaginations of those who engage theirs regularly and will help springboard those who have yet to experience the dizzying heights of their own creations--at any age. Whether you are a parent or a teacher, I would love to invite you to stop by Teach Preschool and see some of the other books and activities I share on my blog that young children will enjoy both at home or in the classroom!
