Did you know you can stretch and grown your own brain? Or that making mistakes is one of the best ways your brain learns? Just like how lifting weights helps your muscles get stronger, trying new things without giving up—like finding the courage to put your face in the water the first time you’re at a pool—strengthens your brain. Next time, your brain will remind you that you overcame that fear, and you will be braver!

With easy-to-digest facts and humorous illustrations, this is the perfect introduction to growth mindset for readers of all ages, and is quickly on its way to becoming a children’s classic.

Grades Pre-K–3

Review by: Eduardo Briceno, Mindset Works - July 1, 2017
A wonderful, engaging book for parents and teachers to read with young children. It presents accurate information about the brain and how it relates to our lives . . . fostering motivation to learn and grow, consistent with our programs and research led by Carol Dweck, Ph.D.
Review by: Fretta Reitzes, Goldman Center - June 1, 2017
Dr. Deak has done a masterful job of creating a book for children, parents, and teachers to learn about the human brain together . . . great reading material for everyone and will elicit many expressions of “Now I get it!” from the adults!

Dr. Deak writes in a clear and interesting way about the complexity of the human brian, enhancing the knowledge of teachers and students. This book is a real contribution to the field of education in the 21st century.
