What to expect: Problem Solving and Life Lessons
Think Outside the Box is exactly the picture book that you didn’t know you needed. It’s full of excellent life lessons and encouragement—the kind that most adults only wish had been shared with them as a child.
Feeling puzzled, stumped, stuck, confused, bogged down, worried, or simply uninspired? This creative picture book, complete with crafty illustrations that will have the cogwheels in you brain turning, delivers just the right nudge to get readers moving in a positive direction. The prose is clear, concise, and empowering with an oft-repeated refrain of ‘think outside the box.’ Readers, young and old, are encouraged to trust themselves, listen instead of talking, try standing in someone else’s shoes, slow down when everyone else is rushing, and learn from mistakes. The entire book is quotable, but here’s a sample of what you can expect:
“But think what your super brain might think…
If you could place it outside your own head!
Now, that’s thinking outside the box!”
The truth is—if it hasn’t happened already—most of us will be told at some point in our lives to think outside of the box. Author Justine Avery, clearly a deep-thinker herself—makes this phrase accessible and actionable by providing a variety of angles that can be applied to any problem that needs solving. Now that’s a feat!
So, here’s to raising creative, passionate, problem-solving humans that are ready to take on the world. It’s never too early or late to encourage a person to think outside the box. This book would also make a great gift for graduates and any person, child or adult, working through a challenging time. The publisher’s synopsis defines who this book is well suited for: Everyone. “Think Outside the Box is an at-home library must-have for any future idealist, instigator, activist, maverick, or mover and shaker—and every individual.”
