Making a Splash is a growth mindset book, perfect for a read aloud to your students! It is a combination book of fiction and nonfiction. The first part of the book is a story of a set of siblings learning how to swim. Lisa has a growth mindset throughout her learning experience, while her brother Johnny has a fixed mindset. Johnny eventually does not learn to swim, while Lisa does. The story ends with the siblings "training their brains" by doing different things like painting, and other activities. The second part of the book explains about growth mindset in wording perfect for kids to understand. It breaks the topic into five sections and explains each. Throughout the book appears a talking brain in the corner of the pages. Cute story!
