What Do You Do With An Idea?

Reviewed by:

This independently published book from creative Kobi Yamada is a tender and inspiring one for anyone of any age.

The boy asks, “What do I do with this idea?” At first he ignored it. 

A young child’s idea kept following him, and he started to care for it. The idea grew bigger once time was given nurturing the brilliant idea. The boy’s confidence grew and he began to show it to other people even though he was afraid that if people saw it they would laugh.  He took a risk, he realized its value and decided to protect it and give it his attention. 

The author encourages the reader to welcome personal ideas that come into our heads. Not hiding it but rather to spend time exploring and developing an idea that lingers with us.  One day something amazing happens!
