Fine Motor Skills
By holding paint brushes, crayons and pencils children are exercising and developing the small muscles in their hands and wrists.
A major goal in our book is to assists children in exploring not only, who they are but also who they are becoming and how they see others.
‘Being’ encompasses the doing, creating, making and producing. But it’s also about children making meaning of their world and their place in it. Rather than requiring children to follow strict instructions, children should be free to imagine and generate their own ideas.

Why This Book?
Many people assume that creativity is an inborn talent that their kids either do or do not have; just as all children are not equally athletic, all children are not equally creative. Recent studies are finding that creativity is more skill than inborn talent, and it is a skill parents can help their kids develop. My goal with this book is to empower your child to explore their own creativity. When they are lost it will offer a helping hand and more importantly when they have their own vision, they will be able to explore the world as they see it!
