Thinking Creatively: A Guide to Training Imagination.
Davis, Gary A.; Houtman, Susan E.
The ideas in this workbook for stimulating children's creative thinking are presented as integral parts of ten stories about a boy named Dudley Bond (a distant relative of a very famous spy), his friend Max (a professional bear), and his cousin Maybelle. They find their imaginations stretched by a backyard scientist-inventor who knows dozens of ways to think of new ideas for solving any kind of problem. These ideas, extended in the workbook for children to think about and work with, include methods for finding solutions--part changing, checkerboard, checklist, and finding something simple; four problem-solving steps; and discovering the importance of new ideas. Suggestions for activities accompany the stories, and a review concludes the workbook. (JM)
