What Age Of Child Is It Aimed At? This book is aimed at children aged between four and eight.

How Long Will It Take To Read This Book? Despite only being twenty-four pages long, this book will take a good deal of time to read because of all the information it contains, and all the questions it will inspire.

What I Like About This Book? I like this book because it helps children understand what their brain does, and more importantly, because it helps them understand that their brain is not fixed, but instead is a tool that can be shaped and sharpened by their own actions to help them get better at doing many different things.

What Core Life Skills Will It Help Develop? This book will encourage children to understand how their brain works, and how they can influence and improve their own abilities through their own actions.

Are There Other Books By The Same Author? This is the only book for children written by JoAnn Deak, but she has also written a book for parents called Girls Will Be Girls – Raising Confident and Courageous Daughters (which you can find here if you live in the UK, or here if you live in the US) which is about the struggles girls go through as they grow up, and how the adults in their lives can be there to help guide them through their difficult tween and teenage years.
