About Featured Book: Dare to Imagine by Leonard Eckhaus
Dare to Imagine is a cornucopia of wonderful children’s poems, songs and fables.
Follow the kitten Patches as she makes a new friend and learns how important it is to heed her mother’s advice; read the fairytale of Sirius, the brightest star in our galaxy and how she taught all the other stars to shine brightly and light up the sky every night; go on a great adventure with Darby as he rides trolley cars and marches in a parade; and go along on an eight year old’s journey to an ancient castle where he meets the king and the queen and eats blackbird pie.
This book is for the children. Each poem and fable parallel events and activities all younger children experience. At the end of each narrative are some questions for discussion. These questions are meant to engender thoughts and greater insights into the topics, from the child’s perspective.
Additionally, each of the poems is also a fun lyric to a song that the children can sing along with and that you can enjoy together. When you purchase the book, you will be able to download these (free) songs so you and your child can enjoy the songs and stories over and over again.
