Dream It! Draw It! Think It! Do It! Activities to Ignite Creativity

Courtney Watkins. Andrews McMeel, $9.99 paper (96p) ISBN 978-1-4494-8034-9
Loose b&w line art, hand-lettered text, and a quirky sense of humor give this activity book a casual, off-the-cuff vibe, as though readers are borrowing Watkins’s own notebook. Among the recurring activities are a “boomerang” feature that encourages acts of kindness (“What goes around comes around”), scavenger hunts for various settings, poetry-creating exercises, and assorted drawing and lettering prompts, such as lining up birds on a telephone wire or filling in a blank picture frame labeled “The Tiniest Tourist.” Nods to German, French, and Spanish phrases are just a few ways this book aims to stretch readers’ vocabularies and intellects, even as it stays committed to off-kilter creative fun. Ages 7–12. (Oct.)
