What Do You Do With an Idea? is a very encouraging book! This book is about a young boy who has an idea and is afraid to share it. The boy is worried no one will like his idea, and he is scared it is a bad idea. The boy grows more and more confident with his idea, and he eventually realizes that ideas are always great and should be shared! The boys idea ends up changing the world. This book is so wonderful because it can inspire our perfect shy students to share with the class more, and it would help students know that we love hearing their thoughts and ideas. What Do You Do With an Idea? would be best as a read aloud to grades 2nd-5th.This book would ignite a wonderful class discussion about why it is important to share our ideas. The teacher could have the students write and illustrate a way they could make the world a better place, or write about the feelings the felt during and after the book.
