Mother Daughter Book Reviews is pleased to be participating in the NG Kids Books “Mastermind” Blog Tour (May 23 to June 1, 2016).
Welcome to Stop #2 on the
National Geographic Kids Mastermind Blog Tour!
This summer, National Geographic Kids Books is inviting kids to “Unleash Their Inner Genius” with the release of Mastermind (May 2016, ages 8-12). In this fun, interactive book, kids learn what type of thinker they are and are given the chance to exercise different parts of their brains with games, tests and puzzles.
Each stop on the National Geographic Kids Mastermind Blog Tour will bring you one step closer to becoming a “Certified Mastermind”. Once you’ve completed the quiz from Stop #1 hosted by Reading is Better with Cupcakes, compare your answers to the chart below and find out your Genius Genus!
Then, be sure to stop by each stop on the tour and challenge yourself to unleash your inner genius with fun quizzes, optical illusions, and brain teasers, and learn tips and tricks for improving brainpower and explanations for the science behind navigating your mental map.
Are you ready to find out what kind of genius you are? Check out below and be sure to tweet your results using #Mastermind!
About the Book
The cheeky narrator and self-proclaimed “Mastermind” Ima Genius and her talking dog, Atom, guide the reader through short and snappy explanations of the science behind why the brain does what it does and how it affects the senses, spatial reasoning, language, memory and problem solving. As kids work their way through the book completing experiments, brain teasers, mazes, quizzes and games, their efforts (and smarts!) are rewarded with a Certificate of Mental Achievement declaring them as a “Certified Mastermind”. Or, in the words of Ima Genius:
“When I’m finished with you, your brain will be so huge that your average-size neck will no longer be able to support your massive noggin. Ha! I kid. That’s only happened once.”
Stop by Geo Librarian tomorrow and explore YOUR senses!
