What is the brain, and how does it work?
In famed neurologist Philip R. Kennedy’s book Get a Move On, Neuron!, children are encouraged to be curious, ask questions, and find out how exactly the brain works in a simple, fun, and exciting way. With fun examples and colorful illustrations, kids are taken on a journey as they learn all about neurons.
Intended for children ages 8-12 years old.
Called the “father of the cyborg”, Philip R. Kennedy is a world-renowned neurologist and has been featured in Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Discover magazine, Wired, NPR’s All Things Considered, ABC, Dateline NBC, PBS, and many other news, radio, and television programs.
Get a Move On, Neuron! was a fantastic book aimed at young readers, focusing on learning all about how the brain works, using language and images that make sense for kids (and honestly, helped explain things to me, a not exactly scientific adult). I did find the cover a little cheesy and am not sure it did justice to the contents of the story, but that shouldn’t deter anyone from picking this up.
In a time when parents are realizing more and more just how important it is for their children to be well educated, books like these are exactly what so many of us are looking for. I’ll be sure to recommend this!
