Imagine We Were


Imagine We Were by Renee Bennett, illustrated by Claire Richards (Wombat Books)
HB RRP $19.95
ISBN 978-1-921633-63-8
Reviewed by Jacque Duffy

On first impressions this book is inviting, it begs for you to pick it up and have a read. I was not disappointed when I did. It is not only beautifully illustrated but beautifully written. A rhyming adventure for a mother and her baby, they imagine themselves to be a variety of animals always a mother and baby with the mother confirming her love.

The author Renee Bennett has managed, in a simple rhyme, to express a very important message, and one that shared by parent and child would make this book a favorite.

Claire Richards, the illustrator has illustrated six books. She works in watercolour, coloured pencil and crayon. The illustrations in this book are peaceful and comforting yet still loose, colourful, and full of fun.
