Imagine It! an education website for kids of all ages is a place to discover the life and works of Carl Sandburg.

Take a peek and investigate the answer to Carl Sandburg's question, Where to, What Next?

You may find yourself looking for The Right Word to complete a Sandburg poem, or you may discover how to breed a champion goat in Getting Your Goat. Perhaps you will discover the human traits in the city of Chicago in the activity, Uncover Chicago or you will solve the website's riddle and be able to take a virtual tour of Carl Sandburg's Flat Rock, North Carolina home and of Mrs. Sandburg's dairy goat farm. If so, you may even be able to listen to Carl Sandburg tell a story from his famous Rootabaga Stories or hear one of the songs he collected for his American Songbag collection of American folk songs.
