Abstract:

"This book vividly illustrates how Anna Craft's concept of 'possibility thinking'--shifting from 'what is' to 'what might be'--is at the heart of creativity. It traces the verbal and non-verbal communication, collaboration and identity development of three children as they use art and craft through their first three years in school. Through the engaging words and actions of the self-named Rosie Runner, Hot Wheels and Box Boy, readers are led through the immersive worlds of young children. Educators in early years settings and primary schools, creative arts playworkers and social studies researchers will see how they can observe, document, foster and assess creativity in their own settings and enhance their own pedagogical practice."--Provided by publisher.
