Episode 236 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast
In this episode of the CMP, we take a look around the library, celebrating the art of close looking, of really tuning in, of noticing the details. In this show, there is a sliver of an art kid story and a magical and mystical book for middle (or younger) readers. This one might stretch your willingness to believe, but it is still a charming read for poets and dog lovers alike.
