My Curious Brain

My Curious Brain sparks children’s curiosity about how the brain works. The different parts of the brain are represented by the instinctual dinosaur, the emotional monkey, and the wise owl. The story offers children and adults a fun and interesting way to gain a greater understanding of how the brain develops, how it processes emotions, and how to deal with those emotions.

When people experience big emotions, it can be difficult for the brain to work as well as it does when it is calm, happy, and relaxed. My Curious Brain illustrates how to practice calming the instinctual dinosaur and the emotional monkey, in order to help access the wise owl.

The following resources provide parents, teachers, and caregivers with tools to support brain health for children.
