The Book SmARTS & Crafts series uses a hands-on, paint-under-your-fingernails, glitter-in-your socks approach to creativity, reading and professional development.
Studies show that a high CQ (creativity quotient) is a better indicator of future success than a high IQ. Creative people are problem solvers and innovators. They tend to be more resilient better able to handle new and unfamiliar situations. But recent studies show that American kids are no longer as creative as they once were. Blame video games, standardized tests, Justin Bieber, whatever… The truth is Creativity is a Muscle, and like all muscles, if you don’t use it, you lose it!
The Book SmARTs & Crafts series combines reading and creativity in 65 “how to” videos that provide simple, entertaining instructions for crafts, games, recipes and activities that all relate to children’s books. Geared to teachers, librarians, and anyone else looking for creative literacy ideas, the series provides out-of-the-box activities to inspire creativity and a love of books.
