9780007166077: Brain Child: How Smart Parents Make Smart Kids

Tony Buzan, 'the biggest name in memory', takes a fascinating and exuberant look at the enormous potential of a child's brain and provides parents with the practical tools they need to help their children achieve it. Mind maps, memory games and other techniques allow parents to encourage learning and development for children of all ages. With Tony Buzan it's all brain, no pain! Research shows that the time and energy you dedicate to your child in the first five years pays off dividends for the next ten. With competition for the best schools stiffening, parents having children later and being more aware of the part they must play in their child's education, there is more and more demand for practical resources like Brain Child. Tony Buzan, world-renowned inventor Mind Maps, has written the ultimate 'operations manual' to help parents liberate their child's true brain potential. He explains how the brain develops and the simple things you can do to stimulate your child's multiple intelligences - including social, creative, numerical and physical - and unlock his or her natural genius. * Bring out the Leonardo or Einstein in your child * Share fun memory games, number skills and Mind Maps * Raise your child to be happy and confident * Learn new ways of talking to and reading with your child * Let your child love numbers as well as words * Watch him or her excel at school and succeed in life All parents who pick up this book will be inspired and empowered by Tony's understanding of their child's brain and what they can do to fulfil his or her true potential.

Review:

'This lively, heartening book radiates enthusiasm and will give parents - and teachers - the confidence to believe that, yes, they really can make a difference.' TES (Times Educational Supplement) 'Tony Buzan deserves a medal for coming up with the sanity-saving concept of Mind Maps, which make difficult mental tasks possible, even pleasurable, by engaging the right side of the brain, where colour and creativity reign...The system can be a lifesaver for children with dyslexia-type difficulties.' TIME OUT 'Tony Buzan comes to the rescue with this inspiring, fun and practical book, which helps parents help their children become intelligent in every sense of the word.' EVENING ECHO 'In his desperately needed and paradigm-shifting book Brain Child, Tony Buzan, among many other timely and pertinent observations for the development of the intelligence of your child, identifies that learning Mind Sports and chess in particular, stimulates dendritic growth early in life and provides synaptic protection as you get older! Protect your child and yourself - buy this book! Brain Child should be nominated as the "Brain Book" of the year!' THE SPECTATOR
