Themes: Environment/ Imagination
Here is an exuberant dance through the forest, the estuaries, the skies where a small girl uses her imagination to bring a wealth of material into patterns and objects, pictures and ideas. We see here part of the private art collection she creates but in a way that any child looking at the book will be stimulated into creating their own. 
A wonderful panacea to the bright light of the iPad and the tv screen.
Preschool up/ Age 4 up
