Sadie has been many things. A girl who lived under the sea, a boy raised by wolves, an adventurer in Wonderland. She whispers to the dresses in her closet and talks to birds in the treetops. More than anything though, Sadie likes stories because you don't need anything to create them. This is Sadie and this is her story.
In this lovely little picture book, Sadie embodies imagination. She is the child that all of us were and all children are. Her play has no gender boundaries. It includes animals and literature and fantasy. This isn't an action packed story although it contains all the trappings of an action packed imagination. Perfect for bedtime or just for the kid who needs to be reminded that pretending is okay.
