If you have ever spent time watching your children, you might think they are highly creative already. They sing, dance, talk to imaginary friends and invent the most wonderful excuses for why they don’t have to go to bed. But creativity is much more than that.

Creativity is the highest form of thinking. Creative thinking is a way of seeing the world, a way of solving problems, a way of thriving in an environment that is constantly changing.

My Sandwich is a Spaceship is about teaching your child 10 creative thinking skills essential for being successful, no matter what he or she chooses to do in the future. These skills can, and should, last a lifetime, and you can help your child to learn them and use them, starting today.

Creativity teachers and researchers (and moms) Cyndi Burnett and Michaelene Dawson-Globus bring two of their passions together in My Sandwich is a Spaceship: Creativity for Parents & Young Children. The authors say: "This book is about two of our favorite topics: creativity and children. We have written it because we believe it is never too soon to start teaching kids how to use their creativity."
