Getting Ideas is a short, fun e-book about how to get ideas and what to do with them. The book explains ideas in a way that helps children and young people understand why creative thinking matters and gives them the confidence that they can think creatively.
The cover blurb: This is a helpful book full of lies (and truths) about being silly, one possible way to not be eaten by a T. rex, large heads, mythical creatures, an extremely valuable diamond and much more.* Most of all, this book is about ideas, why they matter, how to get them and what to do with them.
This book is used by teachers to help foster creativity in their classes and read for pleasure by children and young people. Once, the print edition was a end-of-year gift for Year 6 leavers from the headteacher.
