Dear Friends, today you are in for a treat because I am going to tell you about the most delightful book: Show me a Story by Emily Neuburger. I loved this book from the very beginning when Emily invites us in her gentle voice, full of whimsy:
Trust your imagination. Walk openly into the unknown land of a story.
Does anyone else remember, as a child, getting lost in imagination? Isn't it beautiful, as an adult, to watch young children at play, exploring their own imaginations and stories...

The ideas in Show me a Story are perfect for parents, teachers & therapists, and most of the activities can be created using craft materials found at home or easily obtained at a local store. The projects themselves are unfussy and uncomplicated, but they invite depth and exploration within the world of story.

book. I did not interrupt him. After all, who am to get between a boy and his Middle Earth adventures.)
This was such a quick, easy project that I made two sets (one to keep and one to give.) Each set has five dice: the first has people/characters, another has various animals, one has random small items (an acorn, a key, etc...), one has modes of transportation and the last one has images of weather conditions plus a few possible ideas for locations (a castle, a forest, etc...)
