We all use creativity: To solve problems by imagining different outcomes and how to achieve them. To enhance our lives by creating ways to make ourselves happy. To enrich relationships. Picture books nurture creativity: By providing an opportunity for open ended questions to encourage imagination such as “what would it be like to float in a bubble?” llustrations in picture books help children understand what they are reading and provide visual clues which inspire imagination. Children often make up their own languages while pretending to be characters in a story.
