Children’s Imagination
Creativity Under Our Noses

Author(s): Ursula Kolbe (click on the author's name for more titles)

Is today’s pressure on parents and teachers sidelining children’s play?
Artist and educator Ursula Kolbe opens our eyes and ears to what’s happening ‘under our noses’ when children play—with anything from seedpods to felt-tip pens or even an iPad. Kolbe’s stories reveal that unstructured and unhurried play—as neuroscientists, psychologists and educators have long said—encourages children to become imaginative and inventive thinkers.

By looking at children’s responses to the unexpected in play, Children’s Imagination: Creativity Under Our Noses uncovers valuable clues to what sparks creativity in us all.

For all who live and work with children 1.5–10 years.

‘A lovely, lovely book—well and truly loveable! A cracker.’
Janet Robertson, educational consultant and teacher, Mia-Mia Child and Family Study Centre, Macquarie University, Sydney
