How To Solve a Problem

 This book is so inspiring! Ashima Shiraishi started rock climbing at 6 years old, and today is renown as one of the best climbers in the world. She is the first and only female climber to ascend a V15 bouldering problem.

This story’s narrative is especially engaging, offering specific examples about how she learned from falls and failure. No matter how hard the fall, Ashima doesn’t let it get her down for long, and gets up to try (and sometimes fail) again.
I know many books relay this message of resilience and perseverance but this was the most authentic presentation of that theme that I’ve encountered. I read aloud to my kids and when we finished had a great discussion about failure and determination. Highly recommend!
