We are all governed by our automic nervous system, and neuroscience tells us our bodies sometimes just react to situations with which we are faced. When we are faced with something that frightens us, for example, we may go into what is called a fight or flight mode; and when we are in a calmer place then we might sit and digest and just think about things. Emergencies may send us into fight or flight, while n-emergencies allow us to rest and digest. Often we do t understand why we do things, and sometimes the things we do can be explained by neuroscience. Written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, this 'learn to read' book is meant to keep kids thinking. Using skill based methods of word recognition, word repetition and rhyme, and filled with kid-friendly drawings, this book is a perfect fit for the core curriculum where young students are supposed to think and create. To further enhance the learning experience, there is a fun music video to go along with this book on the Bellissimavideo YouTube channel.
