Welcome to better, brighter days.

We believe the most powerful learning is driven by

heart, joy, and purpose.

Heart.

By strengthening a child’s social + emotional intelligence (and explicitly teaching kindness and compassion), we open the doors to unparalleled academic rigor and limitless, lifelong learning.

Joy.

We weave together life-changing children’s literature, engaging non-fiction, and whole-brain projects so learning flows, connects, and inspires.  Learning with little ones should be nothing short of captivating!

Purpose.

Mighty Books & Brains is for parents and teachers raising and teaching the next generation of brilliant, kind, and courageous leaders.  By fostering a love of the natural world and celebrating diversity, our curriculum entrusts children with the task of creating a more peaceful and sustainable planet.

Through Mighty Books & Brains consulting and workshops, Brianna Kendall, founder of Mighty Little Beings, shares her insight and methodology for restoring joy, purpose, and passion in the classroom. Teams of teachers will embark on creating or enhancing existing units that build stronger, safer classroom communities and promote higher-level thinking.

Learning designed to better humankind
