A bedroom can be many things
a bed, a treasure chest, a world…
It certainly isn’t just a place to sleep. It can be a comfy den or a
trampoline, a place for quiet reading and wild adventures. Watch a
room change through night and day and become many things to its
inhabitants. Jenny Bowers’ illustrations are a dynamic and colourful
ode to a child’s creative space.
With so many details to pick up on, the book deserves repeat readings
and is ideal for prompting discussions about what children love about
their own room.
