We used our mental abilities to navigate new terrain and changing climates. We hunted, foraged, tracked tides, shucked oysters — anything we could do to survive. Before long, our species had pulled itself back from the brink and was on more stable ground. What saved us? The human brain — and its evolutionary journey is unlike any other. Stetka takes us on this far-reaching journey, explaining exactly how our most mysterious organ developed. A non-practicing physician and Editorial Director at Medscape.com, his work has appeared in NPR, Scientific American Magazine, WIRED, The Atlantic and more. Kathryn also interviews Personal Development Leader Jack Canfield, author of “I Can Believe in Myself.” The power of positive thinking is one of the most valuable lessons we can teach our children, and sitting down together to read a book that gently approaches the topic is the perfect way to open the conversation. Canfield has created a relatable tale about a young girl’s struggle to move beyond her comfort zone. Parents and teachers alike will appreciate the themes of compassion, confidence and self-esteem contained in this beautifully illustrated book. As the co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Canfield has taught millions of individuals his formulas for success. He is the author and co-author of more than 150 books (including 66 bestsellers) with more than 100 million copies in print in 47 languages around the world.
