Art is so much more than easels and paintbrushes as this delightful new picture book by two exciting talents makes clear. Follow along as a classroom of exuberant young kids explore art and the power of creativity in its most varied forms-painting, music, writing, cooking, performing ... there's no end to where their imaginations can take them! The lilting poetry of Liz Garton Scanlon's text pairs perfectly with the playful art of Vanessa Newton in this warm, thoughtful, and-of course-creative picture book. Young listeners will want to jump right into the pages to find their own muse.

"There are many different types of talent that go into any stage production, and this "bouncy, early-childhood answer to Glee" (Kirkus Reviews) showcases a whole host of them with style and verve. In fact, Think Big is much more of an exploration of what goes on behind the scenes and leading up to a performance than about the show itself. Narrated in minimalist couplets, the playful mixed-media collage illustrations capture the energy and excitement of a bunch of kids using a wide range of skills - from writing and painting to sewing, cooking, dancing, singing, and more - to bring an elaborate production together. For another exuberant celebration of creativity, check out Judy Sierra's boisterous Zoozical." Picture Books December 2012 Newsletter
