(Book) 2017, 32 pages, Grades 2-6, Julia Cook, National Center for Youth Issues


In this story meet Bubble Gum Brain and Brick Brain, two kids with very different mindsets. Bubble Gum Brain likes to learn new things, have fun adventures and doesn’t worry about making mistakes. Brick Brain is convinced that things are just fine the way they are and there’s not much he can do to change them, so why try? In learning how to peel the wrapper off of his brick brain, Brick begins to realize just how much more fun school and life can be. The story teaches that “becoming is better than being” which can open the door to a whole new world of possibilities.
