Recent release “Who Knew What a Blanket Could Do?” from Newman Springs Publishing author Leigh Mayo is a charming tale of adventure as one little girl imagines all the things she can do with a blanket. From soaring through the air to being a lion in the safari, anything is possible with a bit of creativity, innovation, and a simple blanket.

Leigh Mayo, a retired middle school teacher, has completed her new book “Who Knew What a Blanket Could Do?”: an engaging and adorable tale of all that’s possible when one uses their imagination to explore the world around them.

Mayo begins her tale, “Who knew when you were just two all the wonderful things a blanket could do?

“Cover your bed so sheets do not show and keep you warm from head to toe…or…”

“Slide up your back || Stretch out your arms, || You’re a swift airplane || Flying over farms.

“Wrap over your shoulders || And pull all around, || You’re a cute little bear || Snug in a cave underground.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Leigh Mayo’s colorful tale is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations by Isabel Pfaff that capture the joy of Mayo’s protagonist as she realizes all the incredible things that she can imagine just using a blanket. Readers of all ages will have their imaginations stirred and be inspired to think creatively in their own lives as they follow along and find themselves in an icy igloo or swimming under the sea.
