My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook

My Crazy Invention Sketchbook, Laurence King PublishingAnother creative offering from Laurence King Publishing. My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook: 50 Awesome Drawing Activities for Young Inventors by Andrew Rae and Lisa Regan is a new doodle book that will speak to the imaginative everywhere.  Illustrated with actual inventions, most of them wacky, the book is filled with fun facts and guided pages to encourage young minds to reach for the sky.

I love that the book suggests activities on almost every other page to engage kids and get them thinking and creating, it even gives them space on the page to continue the flow of ideas.
