We also read aloud The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires. I just think it's a great book for teaching kids about a growth mindset. That's so important to have and develop. It's about a little girl who has a great idea but it doesn't quite come out as she wants it to. After stepping back a bit, she can see it differently and ultimately succeeds. It really frustrates me to hear kids say they can't do something or that they're just not good at <insert subject here>. I found this book to be a great springboard for a discussion on developing a growth mindset.
