Child development experts’ research elucidates that imagination is very important in a child’s cognitive development because it plays a role in learning and understanding reality. Books are one of the major factors that allow a child’s imagination to flourish. In My Nanna Nelly, a charming illustrated book, author Sean J. Williams inspires the child to read more and explore often.

Here, a little girl’s imagination runs wild as she plays with her stuffed jungle animal toys in her bedroom. She looks up at the picture of her Nanna Nelly and a map of Africa, and thinks what her Nanna Nelly’s life must be like living in Africa. From having exotic animals as friends, to diving off Victoria Falls, to floating up the sky in a big red balloon, to trekking the Atlas Mountain Ranges, My Nanna Nelly shows that life can one big adventure.

With vibrant illustrations, this book fosters the young reader’s appreciation of the natural and cultural world and love for travel, using imagination. Williams invites parents to expand their children’s library and take them to a new and exciting journey everyday through books.

Packed with rhyme and rhythm, My Nanna Nelly can be used as a bedtime story for toddlers and preschoolers. Kindergarten-aged first-time readers will also find this book an interesting challenge. This book will also be featured at the 2012 BookExpo America in New York City on June 5-7, 2012.
