Imagine That Summary
Evelyn lived with her parents and big brother in a house with a big yard. She loves going out at night to look at the stars. But sometimes, Evelyn saw flashes of lights in the sky nobody else could see.
One evening Evelyn met the Maiden of the Light, who comes from a place beyond the stars. A place where you can dream and be whatever you want to be.
The Maiden of Light gave Evelyn a special gift – the gift of imagination. She also shows her how to use this gift. By simply drawing a picture in her mind of what she wants to be and experience it as if it is real.
My take on Imagine That: The Magic of the Mysterious Lights
In Imagine That, author George Yuhasz uses the Maiden of Light to show kids the power of their minds. Known as visualization, it is the technique many successful people uses to see in their mind how they succeed and experience it as if it is real. Think Michael Jordan, Will Smith, Idris Elba, and Jay Z. Visualization also builds confidence and motivation to achieve your goal.
Children from 6 – 9 years will enjoy the simple language, illustrations, and fantasy elements in the story. It is ideal to read aloud to younger children, but older children will enjoy reading the story themselves. Use it to start a conversation with your kids about their dreams. What would they like to be one day or how do they imagine their favourite holiday?
Or use this technique to stimulate her imagination. Let her imagine she’s a dolphin when she goes swimming. Or create an imaginary world where she would like to live or the story of characters living in this world.
This technique can help them to succeed in life. And a vivid imagination can even lead to a future writer in your family.This technique can help them to succeed in life.

Should you get Imagine That: The Magic of the Mysterious Lights for your child?
Image That is ideal for children between 6 and 9 years old – either let them snuggle on your lap while reading to them or for older kids to read themselves. It is a delightful fantasy story with simple language and illustrations that your child will enjoy.
Also, look at my review of Ronin Cleans his Room like a Ninja . It will show you a fun way to get your kids to tidy their rooms. Or Lizzie’s Dream Journal, showing children how writing in a journal can help them understand and cope with difficult feelings.
In Imagine That the Maiden of Light teaches Evelyn about the power of her imagination. What activities do you use to stimulate your kids’ imagination? We would love to hear from you. Please share with us in the comments?

Hi! I am Susan
Welcome to my adventure
Why Read or Rot?
I have started reading at the age of four. I can remember how I often read under the covers with a flashlight when I was supposed to sleep.
During my early school years, we visited the library once a week. I couldn’t pick out my new book fast enough! By the end of the period, I would have finished it already, leaving me with nothing to read for the rest of the week!
Growing up, Fridays was the highlight of my week. Dad would pack the whole family into the car, and off we go! You guessed right – to the library! We were a family of readers.
In my adult years, I’ve developed a variety of interests like technology, photography, gardening and even writing. But reading was and will always be a part of my life!
Reading for me is like breathing. If I cannot read, my soul will quietly rot away…
