The intrepid but forgetful Explorer Ben provides a selection of hints and tips that will improve your children's (and your) memory retention. This fun book is packed with playful techniques that will boost brain cells - will your kids be able to remember all 10 items Ben needs to take on his travels?
Ben loses increasing numbers of items every time he travels, so young readers will be tested with every turn of the page! It encourages them to make up rhymes to remember the objects and to try and think of things in pairs to make the retention easier.
Our intrepid adventurer crosses different exciting habitats, including jungle, caves and deserts, and experiences a variety of different types of transport. As we pass through each location, readers learn a new memory tip from Tracy Packiam Alloway, a psychology professor specialising in children's memory control.
