My Brain is a Racecar - Nell Harris


"Brains are just like cars, they all drive round and round a track, picking up information and then bringing it back. Some brains are Race Cars that like to drive extra fast. Sometimes though, they forget to stop and fully complete a task. But driving cars fast all the time and not servicing or maintaining them leads to overheating and burnout. We can apply that same logic to our brains."


Nell Harris is a local artist, author and all-around ray of sunshine. Inspired by her daughter's ADHD diagnosis, Nell wanted to gift her a book that help explained her brain's processes and needs without big words or acronyms. 'My Brain is a Racecar' is a story for understanding a neurodivergent brain and regulation strategies in kids terms.
