★★★★★ "A must have resource for educators" - Amazon Customer
Imagine a classroom of students fully engaged in learning, motivated by the challenge at hand, enjoying the process, having fun, and being completely engrossed in their work.
They are not only learning the content but also how to think creatively. This is what you would see if you were observing a class designed around the Torrance Incubation Model (TIM) for creative teaching and learning.
In this book, we will introduce you to twenty TIM lessons based on twenty creative thinking skills that you can infuse into almost any grade level or curriculum.
These techniques will also encourage creative thinking both inside and outside the classroom! Additionally, you will learn strategies and tips from 15 educators who have been able to adapt these lessons for different age levels and content areas.
As an added bonus, we have created a whole website of additional resources and a robust community dedicated to helping you implement these lessons into your classroom.

Barney Saltzberg's hilarious and delightfully direct text and simple illustrations introduce children to the concept and splendor of inclusiveness, through recognizing who or what's different on each spread and celebrating the unity as it is.
For example, the reader sees three cows and an elephant accompanied by the text "One of these is not like the other," turn the page... and all four animals take part in an exuberant conga line and say "that's just fine with us"!
In a series of similar examples children are encouraged to notice both the similarities and differences between characters and celebrate both.
Barney Saltzberg's picture book is a pointed and timely tribute to the power of inclusivity and as well as a riotous read-aloud.
Some little ones want to be princesses; others want to be dragons. The message of this book is that you can actually be both!

There's nothing stopping you from being just what you want to be . . . so which would you rather be: a princess or a dragon? Here's just the book to help you sort through that difficult question. You might be surprised at what you decide by its end.
