Resource Description

Sarabella is totally absorbed in thinking, questioning, and daydreaming, so much so that her teacher and her peers wonder what she’s thinking about. When the class is given an assignment to draw a picture of their favourite daydream people’s perception of Sarabella is changed when she shares her daydream by wearing it – a thinking cap covered in her thoughts, dreams, and ideas. This picture book, with rich, stylistic illustrations, emphasizes the importance of encouraging children to think, question, and wonder and fostering inquiry, imagination, and daydreaming as a part of learning. Suited as a class read-aloud to initiate discussion of the power of imagination and wondering. Log in to read the full ERAC review.
