- About The Author PBS Parents: “Talk of brain growth can sometimes lead to overloading children with experiences, classes, etc. The brain acts like a collection of muscles and each part needs to be used, not just the parts that work well. If any parts are overworked, they will not grow in a healthy way.” This title makes both a wonderful addition to a child’s collection and to any growth mindset program or curriculum.
