I was perusing the new picture books in my local library and came across this special book.
What If . . . written by Samantha Berger and illustrated by Mike Curato is the story of a little girl who loves to create stories with paper and pencil. When she thinks about what would happen if her pencil disappeared she sees herself creating stories in all sorts of ways because she knows in her heart that no matter what happens, and for as long as she lives, she will always create.
Its lyrical verse and vivid imagery are captivating, and uplifting. What a great message to share with young and old, with anyone who has a creative spirit, be it writing, music, art, baking, dance etc. To create just for the sheer joy of doing something that makes your soul feel good.
Read What If . . . , I think you’ll be inspired.
