The 3DuxDesign Team was thrilled to discover the wonderful book, Creative Children Like the Animals of the World. It beautifully blends the arts, open-ended creativity and literacy with STEM concepts in an engaging story. We are thankful to Michelle for partnering with us on creating the Animal Vision Design Challenge. You can find this book (and many others) on Amazon.
