Here’s what embarking on a Mighty Books & Brains unit entails:

mighty books

Begin the day with beloved, life-changing children’s literature with a mighty message. Impart wisdom that strengthens emotional intelligence and emphasizes character-building themes such as courageempathy, integrity, and grit

fiction guide

Make the most of mighty books by utilizing our expertly designed Fiction Guide. Children engage in mighty conversations that foster connection and explicitly teach emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Students master ELA and Math Common Core Standards through Explicit Direct Instruction and extend their learning with projects. 

non-fiction guide

Each mighty book is thematically matched with an engaging non-fiction topic. We believe the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of science and history.  We design learning with non-fiction topics that foster a love of nature and a celebration of diversity.  Each non-fiction topic incorporates a STEM project.

projects & play

Projects make learning memorable and meaningful. Skip the busy work and opt for playing, investigating, creating, analyzing, designing, and evaluating, all while practicing Common Core Math and Language Arts Standards.


We enrich Mighty Books & Brains units with essential ingredients in the recipe for a joyful life: music, art, mindfulness, and movement.
