During the first ten years of your life your brain is growing, just like you. Each part plays a different role and its up to you to help it be as full as possible. When you find something that's "hard," that's a clue to the part of the brain that needs stretching.
Fun illustrations, humor, and lots of practical examples help kids understand how their brain works ... and how the various parts work together for thinking, motion, and even feelings.
"This is awesome, Mom." We thought she was just looking at the book, but when we sat down to read it together, she could tell us information from the pages before we had a chance to read them. Our daughter also loved the sidebar comments from the mice.
Absolutely fascinating. There are lots of big concepts but Dr. Deak has brought them into focus for young kids. They can easily grasp the idea of having to stretch and that when something is hard it means you need to spend a little extra focus on it. We don't often comment on the quality of the materials, but they are exceptional and the pages are actually "soft."
This nonfiction picture book dissects the brain by form and function.
This is a wonderful introduction into how our brain works and there are plenty of opportunities to \"test\" the content with activities from writing to jumping.
