A coloring book for confidence and self-reliance
Mistakes Are My Superpower is our newest “growth mindset” publication. It teaches kids that making mistakes is okay, and that they should not be afraid to make mistakes.
The idea for this coloring book came about as a result of some learning struggles my daughter was facing. Whenever she’d make a mistake, she would shut down and give up. As adults, we know that making mistakes is okay, but kids tend to not see mistakes in the same way. Most kids are afraid to make mistakes. And that impedes their learning process.
I wanted to find a way to explain to her that making mistakes is a natural part of learning, and that mistakes are actually a really good thing: they are signals that we need to study or practice more, they give us an opportunity to improve, and they help us learn how to overcome setbacks (among a number of other very useful things). In a way, embracing mistakes changes our mindset, and makes mistakes our learning superpower.
So I came up with the coloring book Mistakes Are My Superpower – a book that shows kids all the cool ways mistakes are good and useful. By learning why it’s okay to make mistakes, kids develop a positive outlook, gain more confidence in their abilities, and start to understand that learning is a dynamic process.
