Overview

Did you know you can stretch and grow your own brain? Or that making mistakes is one of the best ways your brain learns? Just like how lifting weights helps your muscles get stronger, trying new things without giving up—like finding the courage to put your face in the water the first time you're at a pool—strengthens your brain. Next time, your brain will remind you that you overcame that fear, and you will be braver!

As a consultant to schools worldwide on issues of brain development and gender equity, author JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., and illustrator Sarah Ackerley, have crafted a fun and engaging introduction to the anatomy and functions of the brain that will empower each young reader to S-T-R-E-T-C-H and grow their Fantastic, Elastic Brain!

Sarah Ackerley, grew up in Waxahachie, Texas in a family of seven children. Her parents had a reputation for giving books as gifts for all holidays–Valentine's Day included–and so Sarah had no choice but to read them. Fortunately, she loved to read and she developed an early fascination with picture books that she never lost.After earning her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, Sarah began pursuing a career in children's book illustration. She developed her style by looking at hundreds of picture books and constantly drawing character sketches. She currently owns more picture books than regular books and will probably keep it that way as her Amazon shopping cart somehow keeps filling up with children's books that need to be purchased.Sarah lives in Los Altos, California with her husband and two fickle cats. She divides her time between illustrating books and creating whimsical paintings and portraits for kids of all ages. Visit Sarah on the web at www.sarahackerley.com.
