Featured Book: “Anything is Possible”

Book cover for "Anything is Possible"

This book was recommended to me by a dear friend, who is also a professor–and quite knowledgeable on the topic of all things good! πŸ™‚ I picked up a copy of this great story from the library today, and I was thrilled that once again, she was spot-on with her opinion. This story is a great parallel of the problem-solving process…any kind of problem-solving. The book highlights one that comes from a inquisitive mind, a wondering, and a partner, as they try draft after draft of the sheep’s quest to fly. Even though I haven’t had any flying desires…well, not from something I have made ;-), the story connected to the passionate pursuits of my own ideas and all the highs and lows of the process. If you are looking for an engineering story, a design/drafts story, an invention story, a growth mindset story, or just a really good story…look no further. πŸ™‚
