Chock-full of puzzles, optical illusions, cranial challenges, and information on the latest research in neuroscience, this awesome activity book helps you discover even more about your amazing brain! It’s kid-friendly fun, based on the National Geographic hit television show, Brain Games.
Train your brain with all kinds of amazing new challenges that will unleash your creativity and bring out the genius within. You’ll find crosswords, word searches, cryptograms, tough logic puzzles, memory tests, wacky riddles, and exercises to try with a friend. Time trials test your skills in each chapter. Write-in pages include puzzles and games as well as short explanations of the brain science at work. Tuning and proving your mental mettle has never been so much fun.
MY TAKE: Fun, challenging, and revealing, this 160 page book will get any kid’s brain moving with the myriad of activities provided. Great timing with school back in session. Seven chapters divide the insights into the different areas and activities of the brain:
- BRAINIACS WANTED
- THE SENSES
- WORDS AND LANGUAGE
- SPATIAL SMARTS
- PROBLEM SOLVING
- BRAIN MYSTERIES
After a page or two of background in each section, readers work on a wide variety of games and puzzles that demonstrate how the brain works. Answers are provided in the back if you get stuck. I’m even more visual-spatial than I thought!
I’d say more, but I have to get back to the book to see if I can beat my time on brain benders. They occur at the end of each chapter and the challenge is to beat your previous score. So grab a pencil and give this one a try. You’ll be amazed at what your brain can do.
