Capturing the imagination!
Where would we be without imagination?
To be imaginative is to be original and inventive. Imagination influences everything that we do, think about and create. Leading to dreams, theories and inventions in any profession, from engineering to the arts.
By listening to or engaging children with stories they are the able to create their own version and imagine how the characters look to them. They can feed off existing stories and develop them, explore and manipulate in different ways that are suited to the issues they may be struggling with in their own lives.
"Reading is education feeding our imagination in the most pleasurable way." Christina Gabbitas
