Curriculum author Linda Ryden wrote Rosie’s Brain to introduce elementary school students to mindfulness skills and the parts of the brain that help us manage anger and calm down including the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex. Through a story that children identify with, cheerful illustrations, humorous prose, and an age appropriate message, Rosie’s Brain gives children a new and powerful understanding of how to arrive at healthy solutions to conflict.
