REVIEW by Tash Cerny

My niece is obsessed with learning new things! I love that her curiosity knows no bounds, and I want to fuel that quest for knowledge for as long as possible!

Did you know the human brain weighs about three pounds? Or that it’s made up of about 85% water?

These are the first things my niece asked me after reading Your Fantastic Elastic Brain.

A perfect book for the curious minds in your life, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain is sure to develop your child’s love for science, curiosity for the unknown, and thirst for knowledge.

The book is full of fun facts and visuals that take the reader on a journey to get to know how their brains work — from helping them do everything from reading to remembering everything they’ve learned!

With easily digestible explanations, young readers will learn all sorts of incredible things about their brains.

The book takes us through explaining exactly what the brain is (Is it a muscle? Is it an organ?) to what exactly the brain does (It remembers! It tells our body to save those soccer goals!).

Young readers will see themselves reflected in the book’s illustrations, really getting to know their brains as they read and absorb each page.

Finally, the book ends its lesson with a great take away: to stretch and grow your brain, you must try new things and persevere through failure.

Author JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., has created a book full of kid-friendly facts to satisfy the curious mind while Sarah Ackerley’s illustrations are fun, colorful, and perfect for a young grade-level reader. This book will not only build your child’s love for science, but help develop their curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

Your Fantastic Elastic Brain has already sold 265,000 copies, thanks to its engaging subject and ability to quench a thirsty mind. A great gift for every elementary-level reader, the book is sure to add plenty of fun facts to your little learner’s repertoire, while inspiring them to go out and learn new things!

This book is ideal for any family with curious kids or kids that love to read and learn!
