how you can help your child develop grit or a growth mindset . . . 
I have a daughter who seems hates challenges. She'd rather get mad and give up than persevere. She does not have what professor Angela Duckworth calls grit and author Carol Dweck calls it a growth mindset. And I'm sad. (And kind of worried, too.)

newly published middle grade and early chapter books reviewed on Imagination Soup. :)
 
Grab a good book from this list of 11 of the latest books I’ve read, all but one are recently published.

(I’ve added each of these books to my new master book lists by age, too.)

I don't know about you but back to school supplies and clothing help my kids get excited. Because summer was fun and it's hard for it to end. So we need some enthusiasm about what's coming up - and school shopping helps.

Finding something educational for your child to do while you’re out in public can be hard.
An “On the Go” Phonics Scavenger Hunt is perfect for those times where you’re sitting in the car, doctor’s office, or even at a meeting.
