It's a chance to inspire children to create, to discover, and to dream of adventures they can find as close as their own backyard. Casey Rislov's newest book, Imagination Bigger Together. "It's all about imagination, sparking it and encouraging it," she says. "Taking something simple like digging in the sandbox and watching dinosaurs come alive in the children's eyes as they play."

The animal characters create adventures from pirates and camping to treasure hunts and spy capers, brought to visual life with beautiful illustrations by Stephen Adams.

Ms. Rislov's previous books, including the touching Love Is Forever, have won a number of children awards each including the Mom’s Choice Award, Living Now Awards, National Indie Excellence Award, and Los Angeles Book Festival Award. She is based in Casper has a master's degree in elementary education.

From the book:

"What would life be without imagination? You would forget the taste of mud cakes, the touch of colorful  gems on a short hike, and the smell of the salty sea as you look for treasure all within your backyard. You would miss seeing your child's smiles and great ideas, or the sound of laughter as he or she finds the new imaginary friend or foe. You would miss out on your child's next adventure play out in your own home. Read this story packed full of creativity and watch as your child is inspired to dream."
