As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I primarily work with child and adolescent clients and their families. I am always on the lookout for new books and resources to help improve coping skills, understand difficult diagnoses, as well as new and different ways to spend time either together as a family, as siblings or individually. In the digital age of video games and smart phone technology, I find it important to offer my clients innovative ways of fostering creativity and imagination. Recently I came across a fascinating book called Make Your Own FUN! By author Stacey Campbell. I believe she has done an excellent job of teaching young children the importance of turning any situation into a fun and creative experience. Stacey’s imagination models a dynamic approach to childhood experiences with her proactive approach. She provides the reader with a narrative and foundation so that they feel confident to take action and create, instead of expecting the world to create for them. Stacey wants her readers to know, “It doesn’t matter Where you are…Who you are with… or What situation is thrown your way; How you use Your Own imagination makes any situation FUN!” I recommend this book for any parent with young children looking for a new and innovative way to teach your child to put down the ipad and take action creating their own fun through imagination!
