In My Room: A Book of Creativity and Imagination

Jo Witek, Christine Roussey

In her room, one little girl can be anything she wants to be and go anywhere she wishes to go, all with the power of her imagination (and paper, markers, and crayons, of course!). She can go on safari or sail the seven seas. She can be a doctor, teacher, or high-powered businesswoman. The sky’s the limit! And when the day is over, she can become a little girl again, safe in her room.

Like the classic Where the Wild Things Are, this latest addition to the Growing Hearts series celebrates imagination as a means to try on different identities and work through difficult emotions, all while having fun. The Growing Hearts series celebrates the milestones of a toddler’s emotional development, from conquering fears and expressing feelings to welcoming a new sibling.

Review

In My Room is the fifth book in the highly successful series of novelty books that started with the phenomenally popular In My Heart. Our little protagonist is back and she’s got her creative hat on, well, several creative hats and she’s having a ball. In My Room is a salute to the power of the imagination and it is happy, playful and an absolute delight. The pages are in the shape of a crayon and on each one our little dynamo conjures up different scenarios and occupations.

In her room she can be a vet, an explorer or maybe a rock musician, her inventiveness is diverse, her enthusiasm infectious, she’s a lovable confection. As with the other titles in the Growing Hearts series the patterns and colours are bright and naïve, they dazzle with spontaneity and quirkiness. And guess what, there is not a screen to be seen, it’s just old-fashioned role play with some basic art supplies, hallelujah! This is an essential addition to every child’s library. For ages 3+.
