Synopsis

Creativity The Ultimate Teen Guide by Aryna Ryan

While there are countless books focused on craft projects for young adults and teens, few describe how creativity actually relates to teens or shows them how to access their creative selves. This book is designed to help teens remove the barriers to being creative and will help young adults maximize their creative potential. Teens will get the chance to explore what creativity means to them and what they should do when they're having trouble being creative. The author explores everyday creativity and play and even looks at creativity's role in a teen's happiness.

Reviews

Gr 10 Up-Though many people assume that only certain segments of the population possess creativity, Ryan dispels this myth, asserting that this trait is an essential key to establishing one's identity and achieving self-actualization. It is important to note that this book is not a guide on how to be creative, because, as Ryan emphasizes, innovation cannot be taught. Instead, she focuses on how to overcome barriers and provides insight into what constitutes creativity. The writing is appealing and accessible, and the information is extensive, with plenty of suggested resources. The multitude of quotes from teenagers should be very helpful...This is a compelling and valuable work. VERDICT A strong addition to ... collections. School Library Journal
