The author's note about how he selected the art, and some of his childhood experiences add tremendously to the book ( )

The illustrations in this book are beautiful! They portray the story beautifully without the reader ever having to actually read a single word. This book explores the complexity of pictures while telling an in-depth story. ( )

Indeed an inspiring work of art. I can imagine quite a few children being inspired to create. For some reason the textured look of the images look like a fork or something with prongs was gently raked through the art. An interesting choice/style. ( )

A young boy skateboards across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan in this gorgeous wordless picture-book, eventually finding himself in front of the Museum of Modern Art. Going in on a (seeming) impulse, he is astonished by what he sees and engrossed in the artwork around him. Then some of the figures from famous paintings - Matisse's Icarus, Picasso's Three Musicians, and Rousseau's The Sleeping Gypsy - step off their canvases, and join him on a tour of New York City's sites...

A delightful tribute to the power of art to inspire us, its ability to lead us on fantastic journeys, Raúl Colón's Imagine! is a worthy follow-up to his Draw!, another wordless picture-book that pays tribute to some of the influences (in that case, a massive tome on Africa) that shaped him as a young artist. As the afterword here makes plain, this is less of an autobiographical tale - apparently, Colón didn't enter MoMA until he was an adult - and more of an imaginative take on how such an experience might have influenced him. The artwork itself, done in watercolors and pencils, is (appropriately enough) simply beautiful. Recommended to Raúl Colón fans, to those who enjoy wordless picture-books, and to anyone looking for children's stories about art, museums and/or New York City. ( )

This is a beautiful tribute to art and inspires young readers to experience, and then incorporate it into their lives.

A boy heads off to the art museum in New York with a box of chalk in his back pocket. At the museum, he gazes at the different pieces of art when one comes alive and dances with him. Soon, the figures from other paintings come to life, and with a colorful group, he heads to the city. When the adventure finally ends and they return to their paintings, the boy uses these experiences to let inspiration flow as he heads back into his daily life.

The illustrations are gorgeous and carry the entire book without the need for text or words. The illustrator presents New York as a rather brown, fairly monotone world before the boy steps into the museum and the colorful paintings bring brightness and life. The paintings are true to life existing ones, which in itself, presents a possibility for teachers/ parents to open up the world of art to young readers. When the boy heads out into New York with his new found, cheerful friends, they visit various sites and experience different activities, the city has to offer. Those who know New York will feel at home, while others learn a little more about the city. When the boy heads back out of the museum, his adventures complete, the dreary, brownish buildings are back, but the boy now uses his chalk to brighten them up, bringing color into the world with him.

The various messages in this book and aspects offer a bounty of discussion material for children. Children are opened up to the world of art, taught how to digest and incorporate it into their lives and even learn other things along the way. I'll admit, the graffiti on the building made me flinch, and while the chalk aspect definitely helps, part of me isn't sure this was the best way to approach things. The other part, the artist, finds it wonderful and wishes all dreary walls were brightened. Hence, the 4.5 stars which I'm rounding up to 5 stars.

Summed up, this is a wonderful book which would especially work well in classroom, homeschooling or other group situations. It's an effective and exciting way to introduce kids to the beauty of art and will leave them seeking inspiration of their own.

I received a complimentary copy and found the book so original and well done that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts. ( )
