Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lucia Capacchione's Creative Journal for Children provides a safe environment for children to find the buried treasure within: feelings, experiences, intuition, and dreams. Since grades and criticism are not part of her journal method, and sharing is voluntary and nonthreatening, children can relax and enjoy using this journal as a vehicle for self-exploration and expression."—Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear

"The Creative Journal for Children represents the leading edge of learning and where we need to go with our educational system. For the past fifteen years, Lucia Capacchione has been a forerunner in the creation of safe and nonjudgmental learning environments that kindle children's curiosity and encourage them to ask the kinds of questions that lead to greater learning. In witnessing the development and application of her methods in the school systems, I have seen children experience remarkable mental and emotional breakthroughs. The Creative Journal for Children is for every parent and teacher who wants to give children full opportunity for creative expression and development."—Mona Brookes, author of Drawing with Children

"If l were the king, I would put Lucia in charge of all the children."—R. Buckminster Fuller

Library Journal
This practical guide explains how to help children from preschool through junior high begin to understand themselves and to develop a positive self-image, as well as communication and artistic skills, by recording and illustrating their feelings and thoughts in a private journal. The value of journal keeping is explained, and specific instructions for guiding children are given. Seventy-two exercises or suggested topics are presented, each explained in terms of how to do it, why it is important in achieving desired goals, and when it can best be done. The procedure has been tested in school situations. The book will be of great interest to parents and teachers, therapists, and those who work with children with physical, behavioral, or learning problems.-- Shirley L. Hopkinson, San Jose State Univ . , Cal.
