There is a wonderful simplicity to the artwork, as you're watching this pigeon explore the world around him, trying to unify people. Ultimately that was Lennon's message on a whole, finding peace, loving others regardless of race, gender, colour, sexuality or creed. He believed that one day the world would be "one" and peace would defeat war. We need the hope that Imagine provides to remind us that people are not inherently evil.

I enjoyed Yoko Ono's forward in the book and he discussion of John Lennon's thought process when he crafted Imagine, and what he hoped from the world. She said that we need Imagine now more than ever because the world isn't "one" and hope must triumph over despair. This picture book is a lovely addition to anyone's picture book collection and worth the read with your loved ones.
