Enna is a girl who doesn't believe in herself and often utters the phrase "I can't do that!" One night in a dream she sees all the possible future versions of herself, discovering that she can be any of those versions with time, knowledge and dedication. She develops a growth mindset throughout her journey and instead of saying "I can't do that," she learns to say "I can't do that YET!.
When Esther was 7 years old she had a phase during which she refused to do her homework alone. She thought she couldn't do it. This is far too often what we tell ourselves, even as adults. Recently, Ester attended a coding bootcamp. The experience was the most challenging thing she had ever done, but that is where she learned about the growth mindset and the powerful word YET. It's such a simple but important concept. Esther wanted to share this discovery with kids everywhere and help parents to embrace the growth mindset as well. She believes that this simple concept will help children overcome their fears and strive to learn as much as they can in life. She wants people to stop saying "I can't do that," and start saying "I can't do that, YET!"
I love the story and the illustrations are really good. No girly/pinkish stuff.
It is about a young girl, who lacks selfconfidence. The book shows children in a very easy and brilliant way how to overcome your doubts and to develop a growth mindset. It does not matter, if they can not do something, because it only means that they can not do that, yet! But they can learn how to do things.
I highly recommend this book to every parent/grandparent...who want to encourage their kids not give up too easily and believe in their own abilities to learn and grow.
One of my favourite parts of this book is also that the little girl is into computer programming - a male dominated science/ job field in our culture.
Thank you for this wonderful book!
