The Monster Story: Neuro-Literacy Tool for Tots and Tweens by: Shanti Medina

The Neurosculpting® Institute recently released its first children’s book publication by Founder and Author, Lisa Wimberger: The Monster Under Your Bed is Just a Story in Your Head: Conquering Fear through Neuro-literary (Neurosculpting® Institute Publishing, Jan 2017). It’s a story Wimberger told again and again to her very own daughter at bedtime to help her regulate her emotions around scary stories in her head. As Little Peanut learns to navigate and conquer fear by understanding how her brain works, bedtime becomes a time of peace and empowerment for her and all those reading along.

“I am thrilled that the tools and brain information we’ve used to help so many children deal with stress and fear over the last 10 years are finally available, through fun narrative, in the most cutting-edge children’s book on neuro-literacy!” says Lisa Wimberger, author and founder of the Neurosculpting® Institute (NSI).

Tots and tweens are in for a treat with this engaging and enlightening story. Today’s world requires cutting edge tools for our children to navigate their day to day life from a place of clarity, strength and stability. Understanding how their brain and body respond to fear allows them to safely become aware of their own stories to choose which of those stories play out in their head. Parents will enjoy opening up a line of communication and support through the Parent Guide and Practices at the end of the book.

What People are Saying

“We’re very excited to add this title to our offerings,” says Megan Winkler, NSI Editorial Coordinator. “It’s easy to read and a fun way to teach kids that they’re in control of their emotions. I wish I’d had it when my daughter was younger! It would have saved me many ‘monster’ inspections before bed.”

“The perfect combo of story and science. Brilliant book. A perfect gift for little one’s birthday!” reports mother Lisa Marini
