Super Child!: Unlocking the Secrets of Working Memory by Gayatri Kalra Sehgal

A fabulous cover design, catchy subtitle & cute kids it takes efforts to ignore such book. Though we were over-committed & knee deep (literally) in pending review copies we could not deny to this gem. And let me tell you I am glad that I took the opportunity to review the book.

Would you want your child to have the one superpower that will not just help in academics but also in life?
Congratulations! As an involved parent, you have taken the most progressive step forward. Super Child! Unlocking the Secrets of Working Memory is power packed with comprehensive, exciting and goal-oriented activities for junior school children. The book empowers parents with the ‘science’ behind each particular game or activity in a manner that enables parents to design the games themselves in order to facilitate learning specific to their child’s needs.
Strategically planned, exercises in this book activate the working memory skills of young learners and enhance their individual learning style, at par with the school’s curricula. The book enhances as well as develops skills to remember, reformulate and assimilate information, giving the child a better edge for the future. What’s more, you can enjoy these activities with your six to eight-year-olds in a casual setting by using recyclable resources easily available at home!
I have read books to improve memories, I have read books to improve IQ & logical reasoning, but in the end, they were like self-help books with a lot of exercises. If you give it as plain exercise book to your kid, they will give you stare. A mature kid (14+) may appreciate but other kids will simply get angry. So how would you handle the case with kids? Simple play game with them. They never say no to the game especially group games. That is what Gayatri has done, in this book.

Basically, the book is nothing but a collection of group games. These games are categorized & grouped based on the nature of how it benefited kids. Isn't it sound interesting? Though we played few of these few of these games during our childhood, if we could have played more of such games, our brain would have been more trained. You don't need a costly educational supplement or branded toys to make your kids engaged. These games are damn easy from a resource point of view. Majority of them can be played with just a paper & pen. Just don't wait for it, grab the book.

I have shortlisted 4-5 games that we can play with my 4 years. An awesome and must have a book on parenting. Ratings
