Little minds have big imaginations. To sustain and nurture them is the task every parent or adult must take seriously, and this is precisely what children’s book author Karlene Stewart does in her illustrated series of books starring Joe Dreamer. Beginning with ‘Meet the Imaginative Joe Dreamer’ released in 2015, the second edition of the series is slated for launch this Easter.
In the introductory work, Joe Dreamer is five. Like any other bright kid, he knows how to channel his frustrations into healthier and creative pursuits. He loves to sketch and draw, giving ample scope to his imagination. On a disappointing rainy day, Joe is at the beach with his parents, and begins to unleash his creativity for better use. Joe imagines a huge whale, which soon comes to life, bringing a big smile on his face.
Set on the sunny paradise of Cayman Islands, ‘Meet the Imaginative Joe Dreamer’ was written with the simple belief that children are creative souls and stories feed them with more enthusiasm. Written for both young and the old alike, the book will be followed this Easter with part two, ‘Joe Dreamer and His Easter Bunny’. A third sequel is on the cards by end of this year, titled ‘Joe Dreamer and the Big Iguana’.
The Joe Dreamer series of books are illustrated picture stories carrying colorful images from the Caribbean, and can be read as bedtime fiction or just any time of the day with the help of parents. The stories aid in inculcating skills such as problem solving and are full of confidence building scenarios.
“This book has totally captivated the children. They absolutely adored how the pictures Joe drew came to life! They now have the oldest one reading it again!” said a reader review.
