The Creativity Project

44 great children’s authors, poets and illustrators create and submit prompts; each author then cultivates a response to another author’s prompt. This results in The Creativity Project, edited by Colby Sharp: 44 marvelous poems, short stories, drawings, cartoon stories and even an encyclopedia entry. My favorite, by the way, was the encyclopedia entry about the Genius moon moth, an "ideavore," which feeds off the creative energy of children. The moth’s description lists many ways to entice the Genius moon moth to your neighborhood and home.

The second half of the book includes prompts from the same creators for readers to use in building their own creations. The book is chock full of imagination!
