How To Remember Everything

Title: How to Remember Everything

Author: Jacob Sager Weinstein

Illustrator: Barbara Malley

Genre(s): Children, Non-fiction

Release Date: October 13th, 2020

Publisher: Odd Dot

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Synopsis:

Kids will learn how to ace history tests by memorizing dates, feel confident about remembering people’s names, win cards games by mastering entire decks, and hang on to happy memories for a lifetime. This invaluable memory guide for children is full of recall-building techniques, fun challenges, and hilarious art.

My thoughts:

I don’t read non-fiction books that much since I would say it’s quite boring. But ‘How to Remember Everything’ comes up with new ideas for all students for a quick tips + guide to memorize things (like the periodic table, historic events & times, etc.). It’s an easy read with those cute illustrations that has been coloured and the colourful pages makes the pages look more interesting!

Memorizing things has been my one of my weaknesses since some things don’t usually go into my head that easily. But this book shows you so many techniques that can help you and the instructions are quite easy with ‘try it’ sections and all. There are some key words for one part that are important.

And some of the examples were impressive, with funny writings and presenting lots of techniques I didn’t even think of! I would say I’ll pick this book up even more when my I’m older (:

Overall, this book has taught me a lot of things, including ‘how to become a memory master’ and some awesome tips! This is such an engaging book that kept me going until the end.
