Draw First, Think Later Together for Limitless Creativity!

Doodle Thinking is a natural process of creative thinking and a way to improve your capability to think and communicate. It enables you to draw what your creative side imagines and connect back to what logical side thinks. Doodle Thinking allows you to think without limits.

Moreover, it is no doubt that building empathy is the key to being more creative. When parents share their real stories in a detailed and interactive way, their children are likely to become more empathetic and better understand others' perspectives and emotions.

"Our First Dance" helps visualize the story of how your little one positively changes your life. The book consists of creative doodles on random shapes and words that many millennial fathers feel during their pre- and post-daddyhood journey.

My hope is that fathers can use this book as a guide to tell kids about their own daddyhood journeys, and show how the simple act of Doodle Thinking can unlock creativity. And, after enjoying this story with your kids, I hope you will be inspired to allow your creative side to externalize your thinking process.

Review quote

In this debut guide for millennial dads, a young father shares creative doodles about his path toward parenthood. An attractive, if flawed, board book that may still spark parental creativity. - Kirkus Reviews

The doodles are what really make this book - they are clever, bright, charming, and not least, are tools that kids can engage with and try for themselves. Doodling as a path to storytelling and creative expression is a tried and true teaching method, and Kang's doodles are so appealing and full of life that they will tempt any child with an artistic bent to try the technique for themselves. The message behind the book is full of warm and unconditional love, promising children that they are cherished and valued by their daddies, and that their daddies want the best for them in life - but will not "handicap" them by making their lives too "easy and simple." - IndieReader

The book is full of fun interesting doodles, with lots of love put into the story. Love the dadvice that is also in the book, great advice, "Believe everyone is creative, including you." - Kids Books We Love
