What is a Creationeer?

What is a Creationeer?

A Creationeer is any person who loves to put their creativity and imagination into practice to create inspired works that come from the heart. 

Creationeers will use anything they can get their hands on for creative expression--from supper food to rotten garden veggies; from school supplies to garage sale treasures--there are no limits to what Creationeers may use.

Creationeers think outside the box, imagine new possibilities, and are unafraid to try something new--even if it means they might make mistakes. 

Why Mayva Matters

Why Mayva Matters

Books open a door in our minds.


Imagination, creativity, and intuition are the magic dust that ideas are made of.  These abilities (that we all possess) allow us to dream up new possibilities, think outside-the-box, spark new connections, open our minds, and break new ground to create change.


Kids have the most incredible ability to access these skills and we believe that when a love and understanding of the magic of creativity is fostered, it can change the world. Mayva O'Meere reminds us that we all have creativity in our bones.

Mayva O'Meere, Creationeer is packed full of boundless creativity, empowering messages, 19 historic art references, and incredible layers of learning opportunities.  

Here is what kids can learn from this powerful picture book:

  • The power of creativity and imagination

  • The importance of self-reflection and conversation.

  • Mistakes are for learning. {Growth mindset}.

  • Perseverance makes dreams come true.

  • The importance of following inspiration and passion.

  • To spark inspiration, then follow the thread.

  • The power of staying true to oneself and following one's inner compass.

  • AND so much more!

"In my house, we are huge fans of Andrea Beaty books like “Rosie Revere, Engineer” and “Ada Twist, Scientist”; happily, “Mayva O’Meere, Creationeer” picks up in the arts where those ones leave off at science, technology, and math. Kristin Pierce’s first book, “Your Inner Compass That Could”, is about following your heart and being true to yourself even when it’s challenging, and that theme plays into the story of Mayva, who does some soul-searching of her own after her creative urges see the car painted in honey.

The book is in rhymed verse which makes it a fun, easy read, but the vocabulary is elevated, which I always appreciate in a children’s book. No word is too challenging for a child when used in context.

In the end, we see Mayva as a grown-up, and she’s realized her calling is not just to create art, but to create a space where others can find their calling, too. She speaks about learning from the honey-decorated car mistake she made as a child and tells that everyone is bound to make a mistake or many, but that it’s all part of the journey. Ain’t that the truth.

The book also includes some reflection questions  that will help your child process the message for themselves and invite conversation, as well as an art reference guide which Petra is surprisingly into."
