    Mind Maps

    Mind Maps for kids
    By Tony Buzan

    Mind Maps for kids is a full-colour workbook, with the emphasis on having fun. As well as tips for improving memory and concentration, the book is packed with jokes, cartoons and brainteasers. Tony Buzan shows how Mind Maps can be used for all sorts of things outside the classroom - from planning a party to designing a dream bedroom.

    Mind Mapping is the shortcut to success that puts kids one step (and sometimes miles!) ahead.

    Tony Buzan is the world-renowned inventor of Mind Maps and the bestselling author of Head First, Head Strong, and How To Mind Map. He lectures all over the world and his work has been published in 100 countries and 30 languages. As well as advising leading businesses, Tony Buzan regularly talks at schools and colleges around the world.

    Mind Mapping for kids is a great book, most suitable for people aged 7 to 14. It is an enjoying read, filled with jokes and brainteasers. Not to mention that every last one of them pages is sparkling with colour.

    In this book Tony Buzan outlines the basics of mind mapping. He explains why they work, but not as much about how they work as I would have liked. It shows students how you can work mind maps for your benefit, focusing particularly on school. Tony Buzan gives examples of mind mapping in different subjects and tells you how to use those mind maps to then revise for exams.

    Mind Mapping for kids, is a very nice read, however I thought that it fell short on the information side of things. Mind mapping for kids goes just a little further than this website, but it would still be nice to keep at home for reference.

    My rating 7/10>
