One of my favorite comics is Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin is known for using his imagination. Calvin’s imagination is his primary source of fun. However, Calvin often uses his imagination to get out of doing things he ought to do like doing his homework.
In Elijah and The City in Danger by Zachariah Rippee, Elijah uses his imagination to have fun like Calvin. However, Elijah also uses his imagination to turn his chores into fun. He imagines he has super powers to clean his room. When he’s done with his chores, he uses his imagination to have fun as he imagines saving the city.
This story has a wonderful lesson for kids. It emphasizes doing the important things that they are told to do. It offers them a way to do it that is fun. I would recommend parents and caregivers read this story with children and discuss how they might use their imagination to make work fun.
