How to Raise Critical and Creative Thinkers with Educational Holiday Gifts

Award-winning publisher has developed a line of critical and creative thinking activity books that nurture children’s imaginations and problem-solving skills.

MONTEREY, CA (November 15, 2017) — Evan-Moor Educational Publishers, an award-winning publisher of PreK–8 classroom resources, has developed a line of at-home enrichment books that foster children’s creativity and higher-order thinking skills. Just as children need to practice basic skills to become proficient in math and reading, they need to practice critical thinking skills. Increasing higher-order thinking skills through mental exercises develops the creative habits of imagining, experimenting, and questioning and improves performance in all other subjects.

"Today’s job market highly values creative and critical thinkers, and the trends within education are shifting to encourage higher-order thinking skills inside the classroom. As a classroom teacher and parent, I am always looking for resources that teach these skills. Evan-Moor’s Never-Bored and Skill Sharpeners: Critical Thinking books are a fun and creative addition to at-home enrichment. My daughter and I love to work together on the challenging puzzles and problems. It is a great way to spend time together." -Heather Foudy, parent and classroom teacher
