Age Level: 3 and up Grade Level: 1 - 5 Have you ever heard a child say, I'm bored or I don't have anything to do ? This is a charming story about a grandmother who teaches her grandchild to use her imagination. It is by turns touching and whimsical as they discover wood elves in the trees or make up songs for frogs. The artist's paintings have captured the magic of discoveries from the early morning dew until the constellations in the night sky. This book invites the reader into memories of fireflies and discoveries of shapes in clouds. This is a stunning book that parents and grandparents will be sharing with children for years to come.
