If you want your children to be geniuses, have them read fantasy.
If you want them to be more geniuses, have them read more fantasy.
Albert Einstein (I think)
Why fantasy, and I would also say science fiction? Because it opens a child’s mind to new possibilities. It teaches them to think outside the box.They have to accept the story’s new world as it if were real or they can’t read the book.
Look at all the new technology and science around you, not just computers and cell phones, but the gauges in the hardware store. What new and inventive thing is in your line of work or in your kitchen? Someone was creative enough to think outside the box to make it happen and make your life a little easier.
Love may make the world go round, but creativity makes it more interesting.
