gifts from my garden, words from my heart.
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) October 8, 2010
Author and illustrator Simone Sheppard treats readers with breathtaking visuals and brilliant insights as she celebrates the beauty of nature in Just Imagine…, her picture book released through Xlibris.
In Just Imagine…, readers are invited to open their minds and explore greater possibilities. Sheppard entices them, through rhyme and rhythm, to picture themselves as someone or something else. From campers and black bears to bees and flowers, this book invites readers to imagine what it is really like to be a part of nature. While it is presented in a whimsical, lighthearted format, this delightful literary play, however, conveys a deeper message.
This book suggests that all living things on the planet are in some way connected and dependent upon each other and reminds us of our responsibility towards the planet we all share.
Just Imagine will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010 and California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010, interested parties may visit http://www.justimaginebook.com.
