This is a book that opens minds and connects people. It is one of my absolute favorite books to share with young children because it opens up so much space for wonder, curiosity and freedom. One of the reasons why I began working in Early Childhood Education was to be able to spend time around humans who carry an uninhibited sense of artistic creativity and wonder. For better or worse, young children tell it like it is. I admire this trait in people and encourage it with children. With its beautiful images and mysterious questions “If…” presents a space for exploring other “what if’s” that’s both playful and sophisticated. I think this connects so strongly with young children because they too are playful and sophisticated.
