I am so excited to be part of the tour for this amazing book! No matter our age, we can all use a better memory! 🙂

Synopsis:

How to Remember Everything is the ultimate guide to unlocking the power of your brain!

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.

Thoughts:

This book review opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. My kids are just returning to an in-person school environment and memory has always been something my daughter has worried about. I think we can all use a little memory help and this book provides!

I’ve always been impressed by people who seem to just be able to remember everything. It’s almost like a super power! This cute little book provides the secrets to many different mnemonic devices, which make retaining information fun and easy. Whether its remembering random words or remembering your entire life, there are various creative ways to remember whatever you need to remember.

I was so excited to try out these simple techniques such as building your own memory palace or creating a story. I was shocked to learn how effective these techniques were for me! I also feel, using techniques such as creating a memorable image expands one’s imagination. Creating a silly image with two random words is fun and imaginative. I find I can see the image and then find the words so easily.

Overall, though marketed as a children’s book, this is for everyone. We can improve our memory if we know how to make things stick in our brains rather than fall out. Give this a go and let me know what you think. Also, don’t forget to enter the giveaway down below. 

Rating: 4 out of 5.
