Susan Striker is an award-winning art educator and the author of the best-selling Anti-Coloring Book® series with over one million books in print all over the world. Designed to stimulate creativity and encourage problem solving and critical thinking, the books help children draw their own pictures as well as their own conclusions about life. She also wrote Please Touch® (Simon & Schuster) which teaches parents and educators how to stimulate creativity through movement, music, art and play. Young at Art® (Henry Holt)is a comprehensive text about the value and significance of early childhood art. That book clearly demonstrates the important link between early scribbles and later literacy and offers solid advice on introducing art activities to children as early as one year old.
The Anti-Coloring Books® teach children the 21st century skills they will need to be successful in a world we can’t yet imagine. Critical thinking, problem solving and thinking “outside the box” may well replace the “3 r’s” as the basic education that will ensure our children’s future.
