"Children and adults will love this delightfully illustrated book that so wonderfully explains the workings of the brain to school aged children. In our Positive Discipline classes with both parents and teachers we always present Daniel Siegel's Brain in the Palm of Your Hand demonstration to help us non-brain-scientists understand brain processes. The Animals in My Brain gives parents and teachers another resource to present an understandable explanation of brain processes to the children in their care"Dr. Jane Nelsen, Author and co-author of the Positive Discipline book series. "This book is revolutionary as it provides a simple, relatable, and powerful methodology to teach our kids about brain science from a young, foundational age. I recommend it to fellow moms and dads as well influencers and educators in the parenting space. This book will change the world."Ricky Shetty, Founder of DaddyBlogger.com "I really appreciate how Sarah has created a story for kids that can anchor them into the brain science of behavior. She has taken a complex concept and made it simple, and fun, for parents and children. I am so excited to share this with the parents I work with."Casey O'Roarty, M.Ed, Parent Coach and Host of Joyful Courage - A Conscious Parenting Podcast "A unique book and lesson for both parents and children!
