SYNOPSIS: Kids will learn how to ace history tests by memorizing dates, feel confident about remembering people’s names, win cards games by mastering entire decks, and hang on to happy memories for a lifetime.
This invaluable memory guide for children is full of recall-building techniques, fun challenges, and hilarious art.
How To Remember Everything is a fun book geared towards kids to help them with their ability to remember everything. From simple things such as people’s names, to more crucial things like history dates for an exam.
The book is filled with simple writing which will make it easy to read for its target demographic; funny illustrations to catch the kids’ attention; and try it sections where you can put to test what you’ve learned or read in a chapter. It also reiterates the fact that everyone’s brain and ability to remember is different. This means a way to remember something, may or may not work for someone else.
Reading this, I realized I used some of the techniques presented in this book growing up: I still recite ROYGBIV to my kids when I’m telling them the colours of the rainbow; a teacher once introduced us to PEM-DAS; and a few weeks ago, in an effort to help my daughter remember directions, my husband taught her “Never Eat Soggy Weiners” (North, East, South and West).
Adults reading this book may or may not get something out of this, as with time, we’ve figured out our own way to remember things. Children however, will benefit from this book as it teaches them different ways to help them strengthen their memory.
