Imagination I believe is an important part of childhood. It is the beginning of learning to dream. And where would we be if we never learned to dream and imagine? What our lives would be like?

I love books that encourage imagination in a child. Books that make the mind work and the what-ifs start to happen. I always wondered how and when the imagination starts to develop in a child. Is it the same with all children?
I found it interesting that not everyone can see pictures and shapes in things. The other day I was driving into town when my 3-year-old granddaughter in the back seat squealed: “Grammy there’s a shark!” Of course, I wasn’t alarmed or worried since we were riding in our car. I would have been more concerned if she hollered “Grammy there is a spider!”
I ask her where is the shark? She said, “up in the sky.” Sure enough, I looked up in the sky and there was a shark in the clouds. Pretty observant I thought for a 3-year-old. I wondered if people that cant see things in clouds and other objects if their imagination lacked stimulation when they were younger. What do you think?
I believe that books encourage and stimulate the imagination. I love to listen to kids as they read my “Slippers for Hannah” storybook and try to come up with a solution to the problem. They have all sorts of ideas.
Isabella Murphy is the author of the cute book “From Dark to Light.” Isabella is not your typical author. She is 12 years old. It was fun to read as she imagined what it would be like to be pumpkin seeds. She tells a story about three pumpkin seeds. Each of these little seeds had a name. Plumpalicious and Plupilina were sisters and their brother was Pumpker. Of course, the two sisters made fun and picked on Pumpker.
The three pumpkin seeds were planted near each other. Soon after they were planted they started to grow. Pumpker had a special dream. Would his dream come true?
Isabella lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her family. She loves music, sports, singing, and dancing. She plans on writing more books. Congratulations to Isabella for learning to dream and follow her dreams at a young age.
Natalia Pérez, is the illustrator of “From Dark to Light.” The illustrations are colorful and add creativity to the story.
