Summary
'Wild ideas' looks deep into the forests, skies and oceans to explore how animals solve problems. Whether it's weaving a safe place to rest and reflect, blowing a fine net of bubbles to trap fish, or leaping boldly into a new situation, the animals featured (including the orangutan, humpback whale and gibbon) can teach us a lot about creative problem solving tools and strategies.Like 'You are stardust', this book uses lyrical text grounded in current science alongside wonderfully detailed art to present problems as doorways to creative thinking. 'Wild ideas' encourages an inquiry-based approach to learning, inviting readers to indulge their sense of wonder and curiosity by observing the natural world, engaging with big ideas and asking questions
Summary
Text and illustrations explore how animals big and small show a capacity for innovation, and encourages readers to seek inspiration from the world around them.
