|Hurray for Captain Jane!|
Published in 1971, this story depicts a young girl's imaginative journey, all sparked by a bar of soap and a wax paper hat. A true celebration of the joy of unstructured and unsupervised play where a child's imagination is allowed to take flight; no need here for anything that beeps, talks or blinks when touched. I am not sure this book would fly off the shelves were it in my library today, but I loved it and remember it fondly. I read it with my own children, who have now developed their own relationship with the story. Hurray for Captain Jane and her imagination!
