These books promote “growth mindset”—the belief that intelligence increases with effort. Research has found that students with this view have higher achievement than those who believe that intelligence is a fixed quantity (determined at birth).

I really enjoyed the book, Niagara Falls or Does It? is the first of the Zipzer books. I liked it because it had cool parts like when Frankie, Ashley and Hank started the Magik 3. The Magik 3 was a way cool magic group that the three kids were part of. But even their magic couldn't help them when disaster strikes. And the disaster was so funny. I guess that's why I like this book so
much. It makes me laugh a lot. It is the kind of humor a third or fourth grader would appreciate.If you want to find out the disaster, read this awesomely cool book. You won't be disappointed. I promise you.
