Fantastic WondLa Review

February 24, 2012

On this fantastic February Friday we are featuring a video book review from the very talented Sarah Laties.  Sarah is the Special Projects Assistant at the Children’s Book Council (known as the CBC). This book review is one of many that CBC features for Children’s and Young Adult titles they love in a segment titled “Book Stop”.  In this video Sarah is both the featured reviewer and film editor for her review of The Search for WondLa!  Check it out and let me know what you think…


Question: Um…when are you getting your own TV segment, Sarah? Seriously, I hope you continue to produce more sophisticated and fun book reviews.  You did a phenomenal job and thank you for your compliments (I can’t wait to hear what you think of A Hero for WondLa).

Keep reading, keep creating…

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
