Episode: What Do You Do With An Idea?

Hello, my little friends!

Oma has chosen a very special book to read to you today and

I am so excited to share it with you in Oma’s Reading Room!

Today’s book is

What Do You Do With An Idea?

Written by Kobi Yamada

Illustrated by Mae Besom

Have you ever been like Oma and wondered, “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 for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed too big, too odd, too difficult. It’s a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it space to grow, and to see what happens next! 

What Do You Do With an Idea? has won several awards, including the Independent Publisher’s Book Gold Award, the Washington State Book Award, and the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award. 

It has also hit multiple best-seller lists, such as , Publisher’s Weekly, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

If you’d like your own copy of Mr. Yamada’s book you can purchase one by clicking here or here!

But until then, Oma invites you into her Reading Room to listen to this amazing story along with all her amazing little (and not so little) friends!

Let’s go!

I hope you’ll catch them and hold them real tight until we meet again next time, in Oma’s Reading Room!
