TurboCharge Your Brain Paperback – December 30, 2011
Enhance your purchase
These books contain a variety of quizzes, puzzles, and challenges PLUS stimulating learning content for kids (and adults) in an entertaining workbook format. It is geared toward the upper middle learner – approximately aged 10 to 17, however, that is not a rule. Younger and older children will easily find this book entertaining and challenging. The quizzes can be used alone or interactively.
Though some of the material is relatively difficult, it is uniquely set up to provide approachable and interesting content for all learners. The level of challenge also keeps the more advanced student from being bored. It provides the perfect answer to "I have nothing to do."
Unlike traditional word search and crossword puzzles, these “quizzes” were designed to get the participant to think. They are not simply time-fillers.
The book works quite well for interactive family or classroom activities when used as a source of a game. It works well as a vacation book to be taken on road trips or airplane trips. The content in the book is not so time consuming that it would interfere with schoolwork if used as additional stimulation during school days. It also does not look like work, so it is possible to offer it to your child or student without it seeming like “more homework” or punishment.
Enjoy watching your child learn and grow.

TurboCharge Your Brain contains dozens of upbeat and challenging quizzes for kids on a large variety of topics. Some are word games. Others require a little Internet research. The thing they all have in common is that they're fun. The questions range from easy to challenging - but the answer key at the back of the book gives the reader a chance to learn something new. In this case, I don't think cheating is cheating since it's a win-win for the person reading the book.
The book also inserts related trivia between quizzes. These are charming and thematic. In fact, my son so loves the trivia that he's been trying to test me to see if I know these little known treasures.
I'm so glad I bought this book. I just ordered the second book in the series - SuperTurboCharge Your Brain.
