Now in board book, the beloved story about a little girl with a big imagination from the award-winning team of Sara O'Leary and Julie Morstad.

Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination. She has been a girl who lived under
the sea and a boy raised by wolves. She has had adventures in wonderland and
visited the world of fairytales. She whispers to the dresses in her closet and talks
to birds in the treetops. She has wings that take her anywhere she wants to go, but
that always bring her home again. She likes to make things -- boats out of boxes
and castles out of cushions. But more than anything Sadie likes stories, because
you can make them from nothing at all. For Sadie, the world is so full of wonderful
possibilities...This is Sadie, and this is her story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Simple, Elegant Stories...they are an escape, they can take you to far off places, they can be made from nothing. Every child is a storyteller and fostering imagination and creativity in our children is so important for their development. This is Sadie by Sara O'Leary and Julie Morstad is a quiet and simple story. It's the story of Sadie, who has adventures, whispers to dresses in her closet, becomes a boy in the jungle and a girl under the sea. Sadie's favourite thing is stories and some of her best friends she has met in her storybooks. With beautiful, colourful, and dreamy illustrations that are so evocative of the tone and lightness of the story. Again, this is a story that can be shared with preschoolers to second graders falling comfortably into the juvenile fiction category. However, don't be afraid to share this one with your big kids as well, to remind them what it is to live in a world of imagination, even for a little while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from and away we go.... This amazing little book will surely fuel the imagination of any child. Sadie is a little girl whose enormous imagination takes her to magical worlds where she lives under the sea as a mermaid, is raised as a boy by wolves, attends the tea party in Alice in Wonderland and even interacts with the characters and happenings in fairytales. She befriends her clothes in her closet, chatting away to them, hangs out in treetops with her friends the birds, and has a special pair of wings that transport her anywhere she wants to go making sure she gets back to her home safely. What more could a girl ask for? Life is fun, exciting, and full of possibilities. She is also a very crafty little girl who makes boats out of boxes to sail her to new adventures and castles out of cushions. The sky's the limit .... her imagination can whisk her off to lands unknown in a heartbeat. She loves to read books best of all, but even more than that, she loves to imagine herself right inside of the storybook plot. The beautiful, whimiscal illustrations have her plunge into the depth of the storyline making her feel happy and free. She imagines on a grand scale, she plays with all her heart, and she literally loses herself in her make-believes worlds. She revels in the prospects of her next imagination explosion. I love the book and highly recommend it.
