  The IMAGINE IT BOOK
The Imagine BookTHE IMAGINE IT BOOK: DISCOVER, CREATE, AND INVENT OUR AMAZING FUTURE engages children and empowers them to pursue their ideas, embrace their curiosity, and merge creativity with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

This 64-page book combines fun learning activities with conversation starters and journal-style pages to inspire children to play, think, build, explore and learn. Along the way, it encourages children to harness their creative power to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and problem-solvers as they explore and find opportunities to shape the future through invention, innovation, and discovery.

Science and technology’s roles in our economy and society are only getting larger. This book offers creative and fun ways for boys and girls to develop their interest and skills in these areas. Children will strengthen their worldview and character as they learn to question, collaborate, take risks, and solve problems. This book allows children to become the co-author while building a lifelong foundation of confidence and knowledge to express their ideas, look for solutions to tomorrow’s problems, and use their creativity and talent to make a difference in the world.

The Imagine It book grows kids with character by:

Helping them embrace their power to transform their imaginations and ideas into real-life discoveries and inventions.

Inviting them to envision the world they want to help create – whether that means saving lives, helping others, launching businesses, protecting the environment, etc.

Providing fun and engaging activities that encourage them to practice being observant, curious, open-minded, collaborative, systematic, courageous, and perseverant. These are qualities that can improve job opportunities, relationships and so many aspects of their daily lives.
Encouraging them to set goals and create action plans around positive activities like seeking-out strong role models.
Fostering imagination, sparking energy, encouraging spontaneity and helping them celebrate life’s magic and wonder.
Strengthening their confidence by showing that their ideas are worthy and that they have what it takes to create, invent and discover.

Why The Imagine It Book is SO important…

Everyone wants to equip their children with the tools to succeed in life. Engaging children in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is important for their futures and this book supports that journey.

Research shows that the earlier we expose children to STEM education, the more we can maximize its effectiveness and significant benefits. Creativity, confidence, problem-solving skills, and innovative thinking begin with the power of imagination. Tools that nurture imagination in young minds are essential. Girls and boys who embrace their ability to discover will feel more empowered. Studies have shown that imaginative people are happier, better able to handle life’s twists and turns, and more secure. Further, the skills they develop in this exploration create a stronger foundation for succeeding in life and thriving in rewarding careers. In addition, we have an economic imperative to grow more STEM talent to create a better future for our country…and our world.

This book broadens children’s worldview and shows them they can find their own unique niche in the technological age; from playing a role in finding solutions for cancer, hunger, or world problems; to creating cutting edge inventions that connect or entertain people; to exploring the planet, pursuing art, or creating new businesses.

Today’s kids are tomorrow’s problem-solvers, inventors and visionaries. Making science, technology, engineering, art, and math more fun, interesting, and relatable, plants a seed that can grow into a world of new opportunities. Ultimately, this book strengthens children’s confidence, shows their ideas have value, and validates their ability to create and discover.
