SEL Book of the Month

This is a story for anyone, at any age, who's ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It's a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn't going anywhere. Believing we can make great things happen with patience and practice takes a growth mindset. This book teaches us to be aware, embrace and bring ideas to life.
