Day 18: The Creative Family

Several years ago I read The Creative Family by Amanda Blake Soule, who is also the author of the blog, SouleMama (I occasionally link up to her This Moment posts on Fridays).

The creative family

I liked this book enough to keep on my shelf to read again, and I probably should pull it back out soon.  I love her philosophy on nurturing the natural creativity in children and how we can encourage that creativity from the earliest ages.  The book includes a few project ideas and patterns, all of which leave plenty of room for self-expression.  I especially enjoyed the nature-inspired chapters.  I guess I always thought I would be more of an outdoorsy person than I’ve become, and I need to get back to that place where I love being outside.

This is one of those books that you feel no hurry to get through; it’s okay to just take it one slow chapter at a time and enjoy it as much as possible.  Just talking about it makes me want to go dust it off.

You can see the entire series here.

  1. I am going to end up with about 30 new books in my library before this month is over with. I keep wanting to get ALL the ones you post about!
