This book is a Caldecott Award winner (published 2014). The book contained a message that was well thought out. I enjoyed the illustrations and the way in which the book was written very much.
Something that I really appreciated throughout the book, aside from the message and writing style, were the illustrations. I loved the color usage and the simplicity, but also complexity of some pictures.
“And together they did the unimaginable.“
This book is so cute and had a lot of room to express emotion and evoke true feelings in a story, reminiscing about having imaginary friends. Very “out-of-the-box“ idea! I would use this book for a younger age group to show that it's normal to have imaginary friends.
Caldecott Medal Book. This books shows every kids imagination. All the made up creatures and colorful pictures that they believe in. The illustrations were unique because they showed the real world as being dull and grey, and the imagination as colorful.
