From Without Limits, Boys Town Press series of kid friendly books that teach social skills, "Mindset Matters" is all about overcoming internal obstacles to work for success. Amelia became discouraged while trying to put together a swing set because it was difficult and unfamiliar, a kid resistant task. She said "I quit!" Her Dad encouraged her to exchange her Down-in-the-Dumps attitude, characterized by a negative attitude, excuses, and the statement "I'll never be good at that," for a Gonna-get-it-Done attitude, characterized by a positive attitude, determination, and the statement "I'm not good at that...YET." After consideration, Amelia took her father's advice and worked hard at task streamlining, dividing a big project into small steps, and keeping at the tasks until they were completed. She built the swing set, with her father's good advice and help! Later Amelia discovered the Gonna-get-it-Done attitude could work on difficult math problems, learning new skills like skateboarding, and even fishing! Amelia became an example of inspiration to her brother and even to her Dad. The final page of "Mindset Matters" offers a list of Tips for Parents and Educators that are extremely valuable, plus reference for more parenting information at boystown.org/parenting. Bright, cheery illustrations and bold story type keep the action positive and moving for young readers in need of positive attitude adjustment. --Children's Book Watch, The Psychology Shelf
