The Imagination Key

Zoom Into Books Author

Beautiful story and illustrations to spark the imaginations for young people of all ages. A wonderful book that will engage the whole family and create memories for years to come.

“The Imagination Key is beautifully written and illustrated. Together, the words and images remind us how our imagination can transport us to new places, allow us to experience grand adventures, and help us see challenges and opportunities in exciting new ways. My kids love reading it at bedtime and "imaginating" (their favorite word) all the wild adventures they will have in their dreams.” —Barbara Miller Gather, Ph.D. Professor of Communications, Elon University

The Imagination Key is such a sweet and beautifully illustrated story! As a life-long Preschool director, I have had similar conversations with children about their imagination. This book definitely has a place in every preschool library.” —Jeannine Pignotti, Director, Oakdale Preschool, Los Angeles CA

“What a book for our times! To ignite and engage every child's sparkling imagination is at the core of a happy heart, joyful mind and creative learning. As a career educator, it is my belief that this is learning’s sweet spot for exploration and optimism. This is our critical KEY.” —Rebecca Peery, M.A., Elementary Educator and Administrator
