"As if creating a beautifully written and illustrated animated book were not enough, Little Pickle Press has incorporated fifteen brain strengthening games or 'workouts'. Each of these interactive activities demonstrates how different learning experiences can enhance brain development... This ingenious book app offers a window into the inner workings of the brain while raising awareness of the thought process. Spend time reading and discussing this book with a child you love. A truly valuable learning experience awaits you both." Diane Darrow, Tech/Media Librarian and an Apple Distinguished Educator
