Psychology For Kids: The Science of the Mind and Behaviour Review

Psychology for Kids: The Science of the Mind and Behaviour

By Jacqueline B. Toner and Claire A.B. Freeland

I received a free copy go Psychology for Kids: The Science of the Mind and Behaviour from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

This exciting new book is ideal for adults who love DK’s The Psychology Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained. 
Psychology for Kids introduces kids to the science of psychology, with chapters on the brain, personality, intelligence, emotions, social relationships, and more. Accompanied by colorful illustrations of psychology’s big ideas, and lots of hands-on experiments to try at home, there’s no better way to dive into the fascinating science of the mind. Why do we sleep? What are feelings? How do we make decisions, and how do we learn from them? Psychology helps us ask and answer these big questions about ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Summary from Goodreads.

Most people associate psychology as for individuals who have depression, anxiety or PTSD; but Psychology for Kids explains that there is more to psychology than what everyone assume. Even though this is written specifically for kids, each concept is explained in such a way that even adults will find benefit from this.

Psychology for Kids is separated into 9 seperate part, with each pat broken down into a few chapters. The first chapter explains what psychology is, and each part in this book logically flow on from there. Some of the parts include how your mind and body work together, understanding emotions and caring for yourself.

Each chapter includes things that you can try yourself and research items that you can further check out. I find these little things really add to this book by helping you understand how psychology does affect individuals by the little experiments that you are encouraged to try.

A good book to introduce younger people to psychology, and adults still will find useful insights in here as well.
