What It Is
This is a book that  teaches children that they have the ability to stretch and grow their own brains.
It also encourages students to have a growth mindset by explaining the elasticity your brain has when learning new things, and that making mistakes is the best way to learn.
JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., has spent more than thirty years as an educator and psychologist, helping children develop into confident and competent adults.
The latter half of that period has also focused on working with adults, parents and teachers in their roles as guides or significant ‘brain sculptors’ of children. On her website is a quote that best describes her perspective on her work: “Every interaction a child has, during the course of a day, influences the adult that child will become.”
Parents and educators at schools from New York to Hawaii, as well as such organizations as the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Association of Independent Schools, the Association of International Schools, the American Montessori Society and the International Baccalaureate Association, have heralded Dr. Deak’s ability to demystify complex issues of child development, learning, identity formation and brain research.
Dr. Deak began her career as a teacher and head of the science department.
She soon learned the complexity of dealing with the many brain and motivational patterns represented by the diverse students in her classes.
This led to her work at Kent State University, one of only three universities in the United States to have a specialty in Preventive Psychology at that time.
Her doctoral work focused on how to assess those environmental, school and family patterns that lead to the healthy development of children and, conversely, those patterns that cause issues, problems and disabilities.
After several years in private practice, Dr. Deak began consulting with schools in Ohio.
In the 1980′s she worked with the Laurel School as a consulting psychologist, where she participated in a six-year study with Harvard and a team of researchers lead by Carol Gilligan.
Following that study, Dr. Deak joined Laurel School as the Director of the Lower School and Director of the Middle School. She also was the founding Director of Early Childhood.
She left Laurel in 1999 to expand her consulting role with parents, schools and other organizations nationwide and internationally.
Dr. Deak has been an advisor to Outward Bound, a past chair of the National Committee for Girls and Women in Independent Schools, on the advisory board for the Center on Research for Girls [Laurel School], for the Seattle Girls’ School, Bromley Brook School, the Red Oak School, The 92nd St.Y, St. Anne’s School in Annapolis and Julia Morgan School.
She consults with organizations and schools across the United States. Most recently, she has worked internationally with schools, organizations, associations and parent groups in every continent [except Antarctica!]. This includes: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Borneo, Canada, China, Denmark, England, Ethiopia, France, India, Kenya, the Philippines, Morocco, Nepal, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.
She has been awarded the Woman of Achievement Award by the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, was given the first Female Educator of the Year Award by Orchard House School, and the Outstanding Partner for Girls Award from Clemson University. She has been named the Visiting Scholar in New Zealand, the Visiting Scholar for Montessori Children’s House and has been the Resident Scholar for the Gardner Carney Leadership Institute in Colorado Springs since 2004.

What The Book Talks About
This book begins by introducing the brain as a powerful organ that does all of the things that makes a person who they are.
The book gives an overview of the different parts of the brain and their functions such as the cerebrum and its ability to help someone think and speak and the amygdala and its role in controlling emotions.
With this foundation of knowledge, the book continues by explaining how the brain grows and develops from infancy to adolescence.
It also encourages students to have a growth mindset by explaining the elasticity your brain has when learning new things, and that making mistakes is the best way to learn.
Each page provides ways on how to grow and stretch your brain whether through learning to play the piano or by taking risks and conquering your fears.

Best Place to Buy The Book

The best place I recommend you buy the book is on Amazon. The price there is fair and according to my research, it is the most trusted online store at the moment. It will also be very convenient for you to buy there if you were planning to do more online shopping today.

My Thoughts

This is a good book for kids. The illustrations are wonderful. Children of all color are included,something that is very important.
However, based on the customer reviews I have read, most people tend to think that this book is best suited for older kids , it uses large words and the information given would be better comprehended by older students.
Feel free to leave in your comments as well
as your questions.
I hope you found this review useful to you.
