Brain Power by Dr Ranj - digital pack and author video

To celebrate Mental Health Week in May, Hachette Children’s Group would like to offer resource packs to help open up discussions with kids aged 7+ about their brains in conjunction with Brain Power, the new empowering and inclusive toolkit from the nation’s favourite doctor, Dr Ranj.

Brain Power doesn’t just explain how the brain works. It’ll teach kids how to train their brain to get better at stuff they find difficult. It’ll show them how different people think in different ways and why that makes each person so special. It’ll help them keep their mind happy and healthy. Because when that brilliant brain of their is in tip-top condition, they can be the BEST version of themselves.

Including insights from neurodiverse young people, the book also features bright two-colour illustrations from David O’Connell and dyslexia-friendly design. NHS paediatrician and Sunday Times bestselling author of How to Grow Up and Feel Amazing, Dr Ranj, is here to inspire ALL young readers to love themselves, however their brains work.

You can find out more on the Hachette Schools website.

We would love to see you enjoying the resources on social media using #BrainPower and tagging hachettekids, DrRanj and readingagency.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries.

And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
