The ABCs of Me: Meet the bloggers behind the blogs.

I used to scour books (of the paper form!) for ideas on how to spend our days as a young family. It was hard work, trying to find creative play and learning ideas. Enter the Imagination Tree. The Imagination Tree was my introduction to creative play and learning blogs. I never knew such things existed. Needless to say, I’ve been immersed in the world of creative play and learning blogs ever since.

Anna is the creator behind the mind blowing resource that is The Imagination Tree, (Blog of the Year in the MADs Awards 2011-2012).  Anna changed the way my family reads together. She changed the way we view play. As our family grows, the Imagination Tree continues to be an inspiration; but what I really love and admire is Anna’s humble, genuine and approachable manner.

I am so excited to bring to you the ABCs of Anna, from The Imagination Tree.
