Capturing the inherent creativity of children and using it to empower, learn and change children themselves - and us - is what makes this book such a great read. Churchill Dower makes the case that language, social interaction and positive brain development are just the beginning of what being creative can deliver for society via our children. Exploration and the very joy of play our only limited by our imaginations.
