Hundreds of memory tricks parents learned in the classroom that their children can use today!

Just like adults, kids need easy ways to recall stuff—especially now, when they don't even have to remember a phone number because their cell phones remember it for them. And just like the bestselling i before e (except after c) for adults, this book is jammed with easy-to-use tricks for remembering lots of stuff—especially stuff they need to know for school. Through entertaining (and often silly) examples, kids will learn to remember everything they need to know about:

  • The Earth—including fun facts about geography, geology, and the weather—and the sky—revolving around planets, stars, atmosphere, and so on
  • Reading and writing—covering everything from the smallest punctuation mark to the prickliest words to spell to the trickiest grammar to the grandest figure of speech
  • The mysteries of history—from Way Before You Were Born (ancient history) to the most recent American history facts every kid needs to memorize
  • Math and music—a surprising, but logical combination that examines cool ways to remember numbers, times tables, calculations, and musical notations

Kids will like learning fun ways to remember stuff and will love getting the good grades that follow.
