      This book is about a kid thinking in big ways coming up with many different ideas and using his imagination How kids think they come up with many different ideas that are random that you actually use your imagination and they don t even know it Some of the things that they think big about is how they are going to play that day or what kind of person that they are going to be like a super hero or something like that That is what the book is about.So for the teacher ideas this book would make your [...]

      I love this book There isn t a ton of text, but each illustration is detailed and interesting enough to provide opportunity for speculation and discussion The word choice is nice as well, using unexpected verbs in a way that is naturally understood without requiring an explanation What I appreciate most is its portrayal of creativity as diverse instead of just painting or drawing I also like that it encourages kids to really use their imagination and create in a thoughtful way, even giving examp [...]

      A simple read aloud introduction to making art for very young children.

      I was excited when I won this picture book in a giveaway because it s by the same author as one of my all time favorite picture books, All the World Whereas All the World is a meditation on the interconnectedness between people and the natural world, Think Big is a celebration of art and creativity.The text is very minimal, with just two syllables per line and sometimes as few as two words per page Each word or phrase suggests an artistic activity painting, playing the cello, writing, cooking, k [...]

      Get out your art supplies and put on your thinking cap, it s time to make art with the creative preschoolers in this book As the kids put together all the elements of their school play in the beautiful illustrations, from painting sets, playing music, learning the dances, and even making snacks for the audience, Scanlon s spare, rhyming text pushes the story along at a skipping pace These kids all come to the same conclusion, it s fun to Make art Scanlon s brief text, just a few words per page, [...]

      Whenever I browse in libraries or on and in bookstores, I am on the lookout for books that the teachers with whom I work can use I generally know their class themes, or individual units for each child and keep some of that in my mind while I look This book fits one particular teacher well because she always has her class create and host a Halloween haunted house for others to visit and in the spring, her students participate in a play performed for the entire school these are 1st 2nd graders The [...]

    8. Laura Salas says:

      This is a fantastic celebration of all forms of creativity, told in terse verse The art shows kids preparing for a school production, and the text names the activity excerpt Black inkLine, shadeKnit, purlHandmadeNo thoughtToo greatYou thinkWe ll waitI love that last couple I shared there because the waiting is important If you re reading this book aloud, it might be tempting to zip through it, because it s so short But don t Read slowly Let kids study the picture Help them figure out what is hap [...]

    9. Jenny says:

      Very simple rhyming text The illustrations really add a lot to this book Shows children engaged in many types of artistry painting, sculpting, making music, dancing, singing, sewing, and acting to name a few I especially like the expressions on their faces Fun to read this in the summertime when my kids and I are trying to do a formal art project at least once a week, music practice daily and lots of informal singing, dancing, painting, drawing, etc.

    10. Samantha says:

      A celebration of all forms of art Atwork is detailed and showcases kids of many different skin tones The children are drawn in a way that make them look old time y and sweet Text is simple and colorful The story and pictures build upon each other and the culmintae into a big art show for parents Although this title is not one I d recommend for a read aloud, it is visually stunning and would be a great display item or book suggestion for readers teachers interested in art.

    11. Mary says:

      While I loved the illustrations, I think many children would find it difficult to understand the arc of the story I feel like the content creating a performance and the execution 2 words per page didn t match up it seemed like a book for younger children but with content related to an elementary school student s experience While I appreciate the message about the importance of making art, I was a bit disappointed in the story.

    12. Shannon Brasher says:

      A book for young children depicting children participating in a variety of artistic activities While I liked the concept of the book, I wish the text was not so sparse If you have a little one with a short attention span, this book would be perfect I would not use this book for a read aloud, but would have it in my classroom library.

    13. Adrienne Furness says:

      Liz hits it out of the park again I feel like maybe I should read this one out loud at the library every morning to get the day off to a good, productive start I particularly like You think We ll wait Newton s illustrations are a joy, too, expanding the text, and I love the mixed media and slightly retro feel.

    14. Fjóla says:

      This is a good book that highlights creativity My just turned 4 year old son grabbed it at the library, drawn in by the colorful illustrations, but I doubt he really got the take home message of the story In fact, despite being short on words, this is really a book to inspire older kids, or at least kids of school age.

    15. Katie Plumley says:

      Inspire children to think big , although this book is a little lackluster with the text The drawings carry it Use as part of a unit on creative expression Could be used to build community Everyone works together to produce a play in the book Could show how working together makes us able to accomplish something much bigger than ourselves K 1

    16. Ed says:

      I thought this was a really good book, with some great illustrations Loved the endpapers, with all the art supplies at the beginning I thought the rhymes were charming, and the pictures were a lot of fun.

    17. Ms Threlkeld says:

      I love the idea behind and message of this book, but I got bored with the sparse text The illustrations were engaging and the last page was fantastic, but I m not sure that s enough to hold kids interest.

    18. Melissa says:

      I find these books with the short rhyming phrases are tricky to read out loud, but I love all the different kinds of creative endeavors displayed throughout the book, and the Brave heart Make art message is a winner.

    19. Aleisha Pendleton says:

      This book was adorable I really enjoy the creativity that the children had I think it would be a great boo to read during or before an art lesson, to open kids up to the idea of thinking big I really enjoyed the illustrations.

    20. Edward Sullivan says:

      A simple, enjoyable celebration of creativity.

    21. Joan Marie says:

      The kids are putting on a show, and no idea is too big or too wild for them Read along as they paint, cook, dance, and sew to create their one of a kind production

      Nice plot Simple language Great pictures Fun for my creative 4 year old and we ll re read

    27. Ana says:

      Loved these little guys creative efforts and their endearing end result Loved Vanessa Newton s style of illustration, too.

    28. Brindi Michele says:

      I really like this book, but not sure if it will work in a story time Young children might not understand what is going on in the pictures It would be great to set out for an art program though.

    29. ReadRibbet says:

      Scanlon celebrates the create process and the arts with well chosen words.

    30. Rachel says:

      Spare text and bright, busy art spurs creativity and drives the reader to make art It s a fun, but simple read.
