Abstract:

Have you ever imagined what you might be when you grow up? When he was very young, Juan Felipe Herera picked chamomile flowers in windy fields and let tadpoles swim across his hands in a creek. He slept outside and learned to say good-bye to his amiguitos each time his family moved to a new town. He went to school and taught himself to read and write English and filled paper pads with rivers of ink as he walked down the street after school. And when he grew up, he became the United States Poet Laureate and read his poems aloud on the steps of the Library of Congress. If he could do all of that...what could you do? With this illustrated poem of endless possibility, Juan Felipe Herrera and Lauren Castillo breathe magic into the hopes and dreams of readers searching for their place in life. --

Imagine by Juan Felipe Herrera

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published 2019-03-04) Good Permalink

This is a great book about the possibilities of imagination. There are some great things to think about in this story, and once the reader is done, there is opportunity to come up with so many more things to imagine.
