Build a growth mindset habit.

Each book has 3 short stories under the title theme. Right after you read with your child, please give them a similar activity to work on. Practice using "growth mindset" language, and take note of whether or not they persist more than usual with overcoming that challenge. 

Please share your experience of these stories!

On the last page of each book is a survey link, which helps me develop new stories and additional resources. It's my mission to promote growth mindset in babies, toddlers and preschoolers, with a complete line of videos, toys and hard cover books. Together we can take this to the next level and continue building your child's growth mindset.
