Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

What happens when you remove all obstacles to a child’s imagination? Anything is possible. Unless of course, you let The Possible Police stop you. They will do whatever it takes to stop children from believing. Wylde Scott believes that all children should live in a world of endless possibilities. In this beautifully illustrated picture book, Wylde takes your child into his boundless imagination as he fights off the possible police. Join him as he inspires children to truly believe, and teaches them that no one can stop them from doing what they dream.

My Thoughts:

Just so you know, I love children's books, I am still purchasing them and my children are in their 20's. That being said, I really wanted to love this one but it was just okay for me. The illustrations are great, watercolor-like with a distinction between the police page and the dreamer page. Even when it is night where the dreamer is.

I was confused about the character wearing a nightgown at the beginning and being a grown man at the end.  And the author's name is used as the character's name.

What saves this book from being ho-hum are the illustrations and the spots of "can you really do this or just dream it" that may lead to real life discussions (astronauts). (wondering if you can teach elephants to dance)

I'm glad I read it but do not believe I will be purchasing it for any of my friend's children.
