About the Book

In this interactive book for energetic, creatively minded 8-12-year-olds, innovative thinker and lifelong entrepreneur Jess Ekstrom engages young creators through inspiring stories, journaling prompts, and fun ideas that if they want something to be different in the world, they can do something about it today!

Book Synopsis

This interactive book for energetic, creatively minded 8- to 12-year-olds from entrepreneur Jess Ekstrom uses inspiring stories, journaling prompts, coloring pages, and creative ideas to show kids that if they want something to be different in the world, they can do something about it today!

Water the seeds of creativity in your child through this engaging book about having a positive growth mind-set. In Create Your Bright Ideas, Jess motivates kids to be creators and ambitious doers who know they are never too young to change the world. Create Your Bright Ideas helps kids discover their passions by offering

  • journaling prompts to bring out your child's bright ideas;
  • personal stories about entrepreneurship and perseverance;
  • practical advice for discovering and using their unique gifts; and
  • motivational quotes paired with beautiful coloring pages from illustrator Nadia Fisher that can be cut out of the book for easy display.

Jess never predicted that her time selling cookies and lemonade as a kid was foreshadowing founding her company Headbands of Hope, which helps millions of kids with illnesses. It wasn't always smooth sailing, but each obstacle she faced put her on an unexpected path of inspiration, helping her discover the amazing things she could become and do, like starting multiple businesses, writing a book, and helping millions of people feel more confident in their story. Now Jess shows kids how to channel their own energy and unique interests to create something meaningful. With inspiration from Jess's bestselling book Chasing the Bright Side, this jump-right-in guide created just for kids and tweens is a great gift for

  • Christmas and birthdays;
  • elementary- and middle-school graduations; and
  • young world changers who want to do something lasting but don't know where to start.

Create Your Bright Ideas is a perfect size to fit in a backpack, ready to be pulled out whenever inspiration strikes--during car rides, while waiting for the bus, for reading time at school, or right before bed. A powerful and fun reminder that many CEOs and nonprofit leaders started their careers with a lemonade stand, Create Your Bright Ideas takes kids on an exciting journey of purpose, self-discovery, and bold action.

'-helping kids launch big ideas of their own.'--Entrepreneur.com

'Create Your Bright Ideas shows kids that their ideas are never too big and they're never too young to begin.'--Caitlin Crosby, founder of The Giving Keys

'If you want to show kids that they can change the world, give them this book.'--Jessica Honegger, founder of Noonday Collection, author of Imperfect Courage

'Jess's thoughtful stories and prompts will leave any kid feeling encouraged, motivated, and eager to take action on their big ideas. This is the go-to gift for every young person in my life.'--Kate Rosenow, business coach and author of All Moms Work

'Our world is great at telling kids to follow the rules but not so great at teaching them to break the ones that stand in the way of building a fulfilling, vibrant, purpose-filled life. Jess's book is teaching kids how to stop being afraid of others' opinions and how to fiercely go after their dreams.'--Scott and Viktoria Harrison, founders of charity: water

'This is the book I wish I had when I was a tween! I was brimming with so many creative ideas but felt scared to talk about them because I didn't want to stand out. If that's you, the power-packed pages within this book will encourage you to be bold and write all those dreamy ideas down. You have those awesome ideas for a reason. If you want to change the world one day, this book will not only help you; it will empower you to start today--to start right now!'--Hannah Brencher, author of Fighting Forward and Come Matter Here
