Jenius Journal: A book of silly invention and crazy conversation starters for parents and kids
By: Aaron Shaw
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I have a soft spot in my heart for authors who are brave enough to publish on their own…especially the ones who are good enough to deserve some buzz.
If you have kids, Aaron Shaw is one of the ones who deserves a look.
He gets my kids. They love his books! He’s pretty much got rock star status among the 3-8 year olds in my house.
When I saw Jenius Journal was available, I thought it’d be a great addition to our collection. I was right, obviously.
I expected the kids would enjoy the pictures and descriptions of all the wacky inventions. What I didn’t expect was how much they’d enjoy the discussion prompts that accompany each invention! We’ve been having fun picking the silliest inventions based on the pictures, reading about them, and then talking about them. I’m not even allowed to move to the next one until all the questions have been asked and thoroughly discussed!
My 8-year-old even wanted to take it to school with her, and that’s about all the recommendation you should need.
I recommend you give Jenius Journal a try.
