Creative problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and metacognitive experiences are all encouraged through the open-ended entries that serve as catalysts for creative thought and writing found throughout the book. A stay-flat binding and ample space for writing provide a convenient format for kids to document their feelings, ideas, thoughts, and stories.
