Through the eyes of a 2 year old

I remember when I used to live in a world of fantasy, my brother the imaginary dogs and I.  The Princess always had a vivid imagination, her dad and I caught her on a couple of occasions in her toddler years talking to a friend called David, who lived in the fireplace.  My little man seems to have inherited that same imaginative streak he has such an amazing sense of humour, even at two he already makes little jokes and plays pretend with us.  I wonder what the world looks like through his eyes...

When he wakes up in the morning does he see flowers growing from my head that make him say, "Good morning mummy, you're beautiful," in his ever so sweet toddler boy voice?

Does he climb down the mountain to get to the land of dinosaurs and talking trains?

Does he eat his breakfast with puppet people or have lunch in a forest full of gnomes?

Does he think his sister is from duck planet or a chameleon forever changing to suit her mood. 

Whatever the world look like through his eyes I really hope it's wonderful :-)

We are reading Anthony Browne's Bear Hunt at the moment. A simple picture book that stimulates the imagination.  A book that I have loved for years because of it's vivid 'retro' pictures and bears' clever use of a pencil to get himself out of sticky situations.  It may not be to everyone's taste of course but I think it's cute.
