The world is waiting for your big, bold, and wild ideas!


What do you do with an idea? Especially an idea that’s different, or daring, or a little wild? This is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. It’s a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it space to grow, and to see what happens next. 

The book is paired with an idea crown meant to be worn as a reminder to give your ideas the space they need to grow. And a plush toy idea egg to follow you around as a  reminder to give your ideas plenty of time, attention, and space to grow.
