Welcome to the Tools of the Mind store.
This is the only place to find prop ideas, books and music curated by Tools staff. On this page you’ll find book recommendations for educators, parents and researchers interested in Tools of the Mind and self-regulation development.
The navigation panel to the left is organized to help Tools PreK and K teachers and administrators find some of the starter and consumable materials they need to implement Tools of the Mind, as well as inspiration to support children’s engagement in high-level make-believe play across many play themes, with prop and book suggestions to build children’s background knowledge and support dramatization. Parents and other educators interested in supporting make-believe play and self-regulation development will find some of these recommended books and prop-ideas helpful, too.
