Reviewed by Alyssa Elmore for Readers' Favorite Neuron Galaxy by Karen Littman and Jay Leibold is an awesome book, taking you inside the human mind. How does your brain work? How do you think, walk, stand, talk, and feel things? Look deep inside your brain for the fascinating answers to one of the most mysterious parts of the body. Meet a friendly neuron and explore how your neurons grow as you grow. See how they help you with the most mundane of tasks. Follow the little neuron as you learn how to take care of your brain so that your neurons don't fade away. A must-read for children wanting to know more about how their brain works or where their thoughts come from. I was first attracted to Neuron Galaxy by Karen Littman and Jay Leibold by its unique title and cover. I am so glad I picked it up! It is the perfect book for the child that is constantly asking questions or interested in science. It is also a perfect supplemental learning tool. The book is written in a way that encourages the child to ask questions about the story. On the very next page, there is the answer. It is as if the authors anticipate the child's questions and have the answer ready immediately. The story is educational and fun to read, but what makes the book spectacular are the illustrations! Beautiful, colorful, and stimulating. I believe that this book is perfect for children ages 4-9. That being said, I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a must for the family's library. I will be looking for more books from Morphonix and the NeuroPlay Adventures!
