Why do kids need to know about growth mindsets? Scientists have found that there are two different kinds of mindsets: fixed mindsets and growth mindsets.
A fixed mindset never changes. In a fixed mindset your failures define you like: "I'm no good at dancing."
If I never learn new things or never make new friends, I have a fixed mindset. My growth mindsets can change!
When I learn something new or challenging, then I have a growth mindset like: "If I focus and practice, I can learn to dance."
Grit, or stick-to-it-ness, is a part of growth mindset of many successful people.

What an Awesome book!
Trisha did an AMAZING job at narrating this book. It's clear and concise for children to easily understand. I let my children listen to the book on the way to school and wr apply the principles. It has made a huge difference in my oldest child. I recommend this book.
