The authors, two child psychologists, have put together an amazing and engrossing book about the mind and behavior. Written specifically for preadolescents, the contents clearly condense the latest findings in psychology to the child’s level of understanding. Divided into nine colorfully illustrated sections, the story questions what psychology is, how the brain works, what learning is, examines feelings, looks at emotions, questions the importance of nature vs nurture, and much more. Each page has eye-catching figures with tantalizing questions, followed by clarifying answers. Every section has inviting activities to clarify the described mental process and concisely and appropriately relates the research and researchers involved in the specific study. This is the type of book that will attract youthful readers at a time when they begin to wonder who they are and how they function. Each of the chapters is a masterpiece of design and thoughtfully intriguing information about our moods and behavior, all the information is skillfully packaged in this awesome production. Kudos to the writers who indeed know how to communicate with children.
