Staff Reviews


For Sarabella, thinking is the hardest work of all! With her huge imagination, Sarabella has a hard time focusing and an equally hard time sharing her thoughts. That is, until a school project helps her discover a way to showcase her big ideas. With gorgeous illustrations, this book celebrates the creativity in daydreaming and gives a shout-out to the special role of adult guidance through nurturing. — Linda Then

Description


From the bestselling creator of Skippyjon Jones, a heartwarming story about the importance of imagination and creativity.

Sarabella is always thinking—conjuring, daydreaming, and creating new worlds from her imagination.  There is so much going on in her head that it can barely be contained. But there are times when daydreaming is decidedly not a good thing—like when you're supposed to be doing multiplication tables. Luckily, Sarabella has an understanding teacher and with his encouragement She comes up with her own idea to show everyone who she is.

Praise for Sarabella's Thinking Cap

"This gentle book provides support for every child who daydreams in school and a wake-up call for her or his teachers. . . . A lovely celebration of creativity and a different learning style."
Booklist

“Readers, particularly introspective types, are sure to see the magic in Sarabella’s perspective.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“This is the sweetest read aloud for any child, but particularly for the little daydreamer in your life.”
—Geekdad
 
“Sarabella’s ideas, seen through Schachner’s dazzling illustrations, are presented as wonderfully imaginative.”
School Library Journal

"More than a tribute to a child’s imagination . . . A tender, sensitive tribute to those introspective students in a classroom, who don’t always quite fit the standard educational mold—a welcome thing, indeed."
—Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

“This is a great example of the creativity in divergent brains.”
—Imagination Soup
 
“This is an exceptional book! It reveals the inner and outer world of a child with attention challenges, presenting this issue as a gift rather than a disability. The fanciful watercolor illustrations are charming and fun. This book is a valuable resource for any child who struggles in school. It could serve as a valuable tool to encourage understanding and respect of individual differences in the classroom as well.”
—Culture Honey
