Ms. Anderson says "'Imagine That' celebrates the lives of girls today, learning life skills so that they will become strong young women - the value of sports, technological competence, using math & science and life-long learning. This sculpture depicts a young girl - 8 to 10 years old - wearing a soccer uniform, sitting on books. Her soccer ball sits by her feet. She is reading a book on the History of Space Travel to the Moon and imagines what it would be like to become an astronaut. The titles of the books she sits on are also important to the message of the sculpture. They are: The Miracle of Words, Fun With Math, The Arts For Children, Friends Around the World, Computers and Me, and Famous Women in History."
