Grow Your Mind – Boost Your Brain by Alice Harman

Help children, aged 7 plus, boost their brains! This book is packed with fun and varied ways for children to improve concentration, positivity, confidence and mental wellbeing in a way that works for them.

Written in consultation with Katherine Muncaster, a leading headteacher who has implemented a renowned growth mindset programme in her school, this is a must have for any school, or parent, with wellbeing on their agenda.

Part of a series of 8 titles: Ask for Help, Boost Your Brain, Build Resilience, Don’t Panic, Face Your Fears, Make Mistakes, Think Positive, Work Smarter.
