Finally, there’s a way to teach little humans big things.

Mighty Books & Brains is where emotional intelligence and academic excellence unite. 

We design our rigorous, research-based early elementary curriculum with a robust foundation of connectionjoy, and purpose. Each unit begins with a Mighty Book: outstanding authentic children’s literature that cultivates wise minds and the mastery of Common Core English Language Arts standards. Mighty Books are thematically paired with engaging non-fiction topics that spark curiosity, wonder, STEM, and project-based learning. Each unit weaves in thematic art, music, movement, and play – all essential ingredients for mighty brains.

Discover a brighter, more inspiring way to learn!

Welcome to better, brighter days.

We believe the most powerful learning takes place when there is connection, joy, and purpose.

Connection

Mighty Books & Brains strengthens a child’s sense of belonging and emotional intelligence, opening the doors to unparalleled academic rigor and limitless, lifelong learning.

Joy

Our units weave together the best of children’s literature, engaging non-fiction books, and whole-brain projects so learning flows, connects, and inspires.  Children experience the beauty of thematic music, movement, art, and play while mastering Common Core ELA and Math standards.

Purpose

Mighty Books & Brains is for schools committed to teaching the next generation of brilliant, kind, and courageous leaders. Each unit guides children in developing self-awareness and emotional intelligence,  as well as their ability to investigate and think critically about the world around them. (Because the world becomes what we teach!)
