Review quote

An interactive lift-the-flap book with quirky 'lemming' style characters that delves inside the remarkable goings-on of the human brain. * Junior Education Plus * Simple explanations and clear illustrations make even complex processes like memory accessible. * Good Book Guide * Anyone who has ever wondered what goes on inside their brainbox will be fascinated by See Inside Your Head from Alex Frith and Colin King. Packed with more than 80 flaps to peer under, the most reassuring sentence is that there are so many things to see in our world we need to ignore most of it or risk going crazy. Now there's a good excuse - along with the fact that you can improve your skills just by thinking about them.
Find out such things as why the boy with the plastic leg still feels an itch in his foot and why your brain doesn't always work properly first thing in the morning. There's a whole raft of things you never knew you wanted to know. Intended for the eights-plus, this is a book for the whole family. * Newbury Weekly News * An utterly incredible book, fantastically illustrated (as you'd expect from Usborne) and with quite a broad appeal to a wide age range, a book that will be a valuable resource for your budding biologists to dip into. * Read it Daddy * Filled with flaps and masses of mindbending 'proper' psychology. My three-year-old son and I loved it. * Psychologist magazine * Children are fascinated by what is inside their heads, and this wonderful book by Usborne is packed with facts about the brain. What makes up the brain? What does the brain do and how does it help us make sense of our world? For example, how does the brain make us think a ventriloquist's dummy is speaking? What happens when the brain goes wrong, such as when someone gets Alzheimer's disease? The colourful illustrations and flaps that hide pictures and facts keep the small reader interested and I would venture that most adults will learn a lot of new things reading this book. * Professor Essi Viding * The great thing about a book like See Inside Your Head is that it covers how the brain and our emotions work - fascinating stuff that children will hold a natural curiosity for. * Junior Education Plus *
