The Land of Imagination Review by Charlsie Swadley

The Land of Imagination is a fun book that emphasizes using your imagination. Faith and Matthew, the main characters, are out for a family hike with their mom and dad. They step off the beaten path and into their imaginations, where they meet a panda bear who is looking for her family. She leads them on an adventure while they search for her sisters and parents. They encounter some other fun animals and in the end discover that their parents have entered into the imaginary world too.

The Land of Imagination would be a wonderful tool to use with your kids. It even comes with a free download of the audio book so you can listen along as you read. The story is also a wonderful reminder to parents that they can use their imagination right along with their kids!

I think this is a wonderful book for homeschoolers, especially since a homeschooling mom wrote it! The story line is fun, and my children greatly enjoyed reading the book and talking about how they had used their imagination lately. Their favorite part was when the children meet a fox and are scared of him, only to find out that he is very friendly!

The only thing I did not enjoy about this book were the few references to magic. Other than that, I thought it was great.

I would certainly recommend this book to homeschoolers. I believe they would enjoy the simple story line and the adventure that the two children shared!
