Imagination Invention

We're pairing with the @fayettevillepubliclibrary again as part of Kids Create and the 2020 Summer Reading lineup. We're exploring one of our favorite books, Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie. This story follows an inventor named Izzy Gizmo who is always tinkering with machines to make her dreams come to life. One day she meets a crow who needs her help and she pours her creative energy into building something to enhance its life- even though it's so difficult, she nearly gives up. Her story is about perseverance, creativity and the love that pushes us forward when obstacles feel too big to overcome.
