KIDS' BOOK CHOICE AWARDS FINALIST

Readers are welcomed to the Lobe Labs and Dr. Brain activities in this brightly illustrated, highly engaging book that uses science to answer interesting questions that kids have about the brain and human behavior. This is a fun primer on psychology and neuroscience that makes complex psychological phenomenon and neural mechanisms relatable to kids through illustrations, interesting factoids, and more.

Chapters include: What is the brain made up of and how does it work? Why can't I tickle myself? Why do they shine a light in my eyes when I hit my head in the game?

Answers draw from both psychology and neuroscience, giving ample examples of how the science is relevant to the question and to the reader's life experiences.
