Me and My Memory: Why We Forget Some Things and Remember Others
by Robert Guarino, illustrated by Jeff Jackson
This book is the first book in Hoopoe Books’ ALL ABOUT ME series. It explores the mystery of our minds and memory: How do we remember? And how do we forget? In it, readers will discover all that scientists and researchers know and explore questions yet to be answered. Readers will begin to notice how their own and other people’s memories work. They’ll learn to understand why memory is powerful but not perfect and will uncover some strategies for improving memory.
Throughout the book, there are numerous exciting activities to enhance these strategies. It is written by high-school teacher, Robert Guarino, who not only presents fundamental information, but has done so in clear and thoughtful text that teens will relate to. The book is illustrated throughout with a cast of inviting teen characters done by artist, Jeff Jackson, which helps to illustrate the concepts in a style that young and old alike will enjoy. The All About Me Series from Hoopoe Books presents books to help you understand yourself and how you, as a human being, work. This is fundamental information, but we often forget to teach you about it in school. For example, what psychologists know about how we see, think, and feel. How these abilities work, how they change, grow or get stuck and how reliable they are as we try to make sense of ourselves, our friends, our relatives and the world around us. There is good, solid information readily available and scientifically validated … and it’s all about you … and me.
