'This book deepens and broadens our understandings of creativity as applied to primary education. It provides a balance of practical frameworks and approaches with wise guidance. Many schools and individual teachers will find Juliet Desailly's work invaluable as they embrace the greater pedagogical and curricular freedoms promised by government' -
Jonathan Barnes, Senior lecturer in Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University

Creativity in the Primary Classroom does a commendable job in debunking some of the myths and assumptions surrounding creativity while at
the same time providing clear illustration of ways in which creativity can be meaningfully identified and developed. The text is made accessible without oversimplifying the complexity of the phenomenon. As a consequence, it will have wide appeal to a range of teachers and practitioners working in primary schools and related settings. For anyone who is serious about enhancing the creative possibilities for children in school and classroom settings it is essential reading. (Dave Trotman)
