A New York Times Best Seller and award-winning book, What Do You Do With an Idea? is for anyone who’s ever had a big idea.
This is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child’s confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens. This is a story for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It’s a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s just getting started.
I read this book a little differently than the publisher’s summary explains it. I feel like some ideas we have are small and seem to be not worth mentioning. But if one can have enough confidence in oneself and in the idea, it will grow and become something beautiful. We all have good ideas and should not keep them hidden.
I love this entire series of books, but this one is definitely my favorite. It’s beautifully illustrated, inspirational, motivational and clever. That being said, it’s definitely geared towards a little older audience.
