Why we love Rising Tide
Rising Tide is a really special book as it works at multiple levels to demonstrate that 'what we think about ourselves' isn't always the truth.
The book helps tamariki challenge their thinking by demonstrating how our thoughts impact our feelings, which in turn impacts our behaviour. For instance if you think you're not very smart, and don't feel that great about an upcoming test, a likely outcome is that you don't bother studying. Understanding this can help us to change this cycle.
