4 Starred Reviews for IDEAS ARE ALL AROUND




“A provocative, artful journey.” – School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“As a story of finding inspiration, younger readers will appreciate Stead’s gentle ramblings of imagination and observation. Older readers may begin to pick out the connections that inspire within the small acts of living—planting a flower seed, petting a dog, staring at the clouds, and conversation with a friend. In all, Stead has given readers a deeply felt, deeply connected story that is homage to creation—and really quite brilliant.” – Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“A carefully thought-out design, from typeface to page weight, makes the book a pleasure to look at and handle. This succeeds, as the title says, at showing that ideas are everywhere, and it will spur readers to find creative sparks of their own.” – Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

“Stead’s bits and pieces of drawing and observation, his willingness to lay bare his uncertainty, and his rough sketches of the natural world don’t form a polished or seamless whole. Yet their very fragmentariness tells an important truth about the way artists begin to create.” – Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
