February 22 – World Thinking Day

Happy Thinking Day!

Thinking Day originated with the Girl Scouts, but has become a world wide event which includes politicians and world leaders. The idea is to spend a day thinking about what good can be done by understanding cultural and regional differences among people.

Read are a couple of picture books in your think tank today.

Think Big! written and illustrated by Nancy Carlson (2005)

Vinney was tired of being small. The bigger kids picked on him at recess, the lunch lady didn’t even notice him in the line, his teacher gave him the smallest part in the class play, and his teammates won’t pass him the ball. Vinney’s mom suggested he think big. So the very next day, he did just that. Vinney made sure everyone noticed him. But when it came time to play basketball, he found out that being small had some advantages too!
