After reading Cardiology for Babies by Dr. Haitham Ahmed, I was excited to get the chance to read another book by him - Neurology for Babies.

Neurology for Babies introduces readers to the part of the body that makes all things go - the brain. The author informs readers that the brain, essentially, controls the body. Dr. Haitham Ahmed then identifies different parts of the brain like the cerebrum, the right side of the brain, and the left side of the brain. It even controls seemingly minute things such as talking and the five senses.

Understanding the brain and how it functions is difficult for adults and students. Having a book that breaks down the brain and explains it in an easy-to-understand way is fantastic. Kids truly have the opportunity to learn about the brain without being confused about all the little things that they learn later. Neurology was definitely simplified in this book. This ability to put complex ideas in layperson terms may be my favorite part of the book.

In addition, I quite liked the interactivity of the book. Kids often have a difficult time sitting still, and this book does well at getting kids moving while learning. For instance, when discussing how the left part of the brain controls the right side of the body, the author has readers move the right side of their body. They also do this for the other side. It will definitely help keep young readers engaged.

As I said with the last book, despite the title being Neurology for Babies, this book is better for preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school-aged readers. Teachers can easily work this book into their lessons and know they are helping kids learn. I would highly recommend it to parents and teachers.

I honestly could not find anything I disliked about the book. I found no grammatical, spelling, or formatting errors, and the book was a fun, enjoyable read. Neurology for Babies was short, bright, and engaging, as I feel most children's books should be. As such, I have to give this book 4 out of 4 stars.

I like that there is an interactivity part in the book. Children can get to learn in a way many of us never did. Thanks for this review.

'Understanding the brain and how it functions is difficult for adults and students.'
I agree with you and this is why such books go a long way. Great review.

Nice review. I believe this book will be really helpful to kids, so that they can familiarize themselves with little information on how their body works.

During my A level studies, we learnt how babies develop communication. It was such a fascinating topic for me that I’m sure that this one will be even more fascinating. I mean, the brain is never a dull topic to talk about. How much more the brain of a developing child?

It seems that the title of this book is quite misleading, haha. This is not exactly for babies, but for preschoolers who can now read, write, and understand concepts that might be too complex for infants. Honestly, I kind of hoped that this book is already available when I was a child as I am very fascinated by this book.

I cannot wait to read this one. The fact that the author has the ability to explain complex ideas in layman's language, makes me want to read this book. Truth be told, understanding the brain and how it functions hasn't been easy for me yet I'm an adult.
Thank you for the great review.

Wow, this is Amazing. A book that breaks down the brain. I Love the fact that the author related the book to kids. I believe this is a must read for parents raising kid(s). I would call this book a parental gift.

This review is awesome, despite being a glimpse of the book, it has covered quiet a lot of what to expect in the book. Thanks for the review.
