Books to Encourage Creativity

Heather bought Aleks the Wild Things Imagination Catcher Journal when I was pregnant with him. I bought How to be an Explorer of the World last winter because I love Keri Smith's work. I find her accessible and inspiring. Inspiring in a highly accessible way. Like you could do what she does without being wealthy or brilliant. She really makes it seem like genius is as common as dirt. That's what it is. Finally, The Boys' Doodle Book made its way here the other day by way of a very belated birthday present to Aleks. He refuses to work in the one I got him, but the others he likes quite well.
I wonder sometimes about creativity like this, but I suppose there are worse things than trying to teach divergent thinking.
