Book Reviews

“What a treasure this book is for all elementary school children not only gifted students. The information and lessons about the brain challenges all students to develop new learning experiences. Children learn that their unique brain can develop new pathways in learning and new ways to engage in critical thinking.

As a former first-grade teacher and head of Midwest Reading and Dyslexia Clinic in Kansas City, I had many students who learn differently. Teachers that use this book can help their students explore and take charge of their own thinking. Unlocking the brain plasticity can help the child realize that the brain continues developing through adulthood.

This book should be a must-read for all educators, teachers, parents, and grandparents.”
