Good brain development is essential because it helps children to reach their full potential. The tips together form The SUPERBRAIN Secret and can be applied by everyone.

How important are you as an adult for this development and how can you positively influence it, will be answered. It is becoming clear that what adults do, and what they expose their children to, has a major impact on brain and skills development, and thus on children's current and future happiness and lives.

The second part consists of ten stories that you can read to children. The author has woven the tips of The SUPERBRAIN Secret into these stories. Each story ends with questions regarding everyday behavior, actions, and emotions that play an important role in the lives of children. These questions can be used to start conversations with children that should provide you and them with insights about happy and healthy development.
