Amazing things are happening all around you. You just need to know where to look—and this whimsical picture book is the perfect place to start.

Have you ever wished for something extraordinary? Like the ability to fly? Or to breathe underwater? What if you could talk to animals?

It’s fun to wish for amazing things. But take a look around, and you just might find that the most “ordinary” things…can be extraordinary.

Imagination gives birth to ideas and takes delight in making the impossible possible. Ben Clanton captures this essence through both wonder-filled words and whimsical, soft illustrations, as if daring the child to look at the world in creative ways. Look for hope and possibilities through the eyes of a young boy and all of his surroundings. Look for ways to make childhood wonder stay alive, even if it means every raindrop is a different flavor. Exploration and fun are at the forefront of this journey-style picture book. I received a review copy of this book from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers in exchange for an honest review.

Something Extraordinary is pure magic. Ben Clanton has just perfectly captured the spirit of childhood fantasy and play through the wishes of a young boy. But while the little boy wishes for big fantastical things, he is more interested in having something real, yet something extraordinary, happen. Something Extraordinary is ultimately about the most extraordinary real things going on each and every day. The story will inspire discussion about other real extraordinary events happening each day in our lives.
