about

We believe exceptional children’s books hold the power to foster connection, spark joy, and get curious brains busy building a better world.

We design Mighty Books & Brains for children to become brilliant readers, writers, mathematicians, and happy humans, thriving in measurable and immeasurable ways. Here’s what you’ll find in every Mighty Books & Brains box:

 

Outstanding Children’s Books

Exceptional children’s books form the core of Mighty Books & Brains. We use the highest-quality stories and nonfiction books as powerful catalysts for building robust learning communities, igniting joy, and nurturing young minds with essential literacy skills and vocabulary.

 

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence and mental health are vital for a child’s well-being, relationships, and future career success. This is why each Mighty Books & Brains box showcases a Mighty Book that ignites meaningful discussions on topics like empathy, grit, forgiveness, and gratitude, fostering emotional growth. In addition to academic excellence, our student workbooks feature ample opportunity to grow in self-awareness with Mighty Conversations, yoga, and meditation.

 

Projects & Play

Every child deserves the delight and innovation that dynamic play and project-based learning bring. In every Mighty Books & Brains box, we incorporate whole-brain projects, messy crafts, and suggestions for play to stimulate higher-level thinking, nurturing the potential of our future designers, inventors, engineers, and creators.

 

Nonfiction Learning

Our planet is a wondrous place to call home, and we believe that children’s enthusiasm for learning should mirror that wonder. Mighty Books & Brains balances each brainy box with captivating nonfiction on a variety of engaging topics. It’s never too early to ignite the spirit of a young scientist, historian, or engineer!

 

 

 

 

Meet the Founder

Hi! I’m Bri. My passion for creating curriculum took root as a graduate student at Hamline University, where I received my Master’s in Teaching. I began crafting Mighty Books & Brains units with my former first-grade students in St. Paul, Minnesota, my middle school students in San Jose, California, and my own children (ages 7 and 5). My goal was to design learning to incorporate outstanding authentic children’s literature, engaging nonfiction, and projects that promote higher-order and creative thinking. Like adults, children have a deep curiosity about humanity, a thirst for exploring the world, and a desire to express creativity. Through Mighty Books & Brains, I hope to create a curriculum that better reflects how amazing children are and increase their sense of flow and fulfillment as their mighty brains grow.
