Analyzing Creativity in Children’s Picture Books

The purpose of this study was to examine creativity in children’s books in terms of problem solving, divergent thinking, curiosity, and growth mindset. The study was carried out qualitatively where the researchers analyzed 100 picture books written in or translated into Turkish for children between the ages of three to six years old. Indicated in the findings was that, while problem solving and curiosity were greatly encouraged through the selected books, there was little emphasis placed on divergent thinking and growth mindset in the stories. New understandings and insights were provided through the findings of this study into how problem solving, divergent thinking, curiosity, and growth mindset in books can be encouraged for young readers. Further suggestions and future directions for educators and researchers can also be gleaned from the results of this study.
