Fooled Ya! Book FLASH Giveaway!

 Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Optical illusions, magicians, hoaxes and more! This is a fun book to giveaway if you have a little one in the house who likes to be a trickster. We have TWO little someone's in the family who like these kinds of things, and one is the perfect age to have this book under the Christmas tree this year!




Written by Jordan D. Brown, this book is chock full of ways to get your child thinking, and learning. It's not just a 'how to' trick someone book, it's one that goes into depth about how people are sometimes fooled!


There are photos sprinkled throughout to keep the content from getting too dry, and a little comedy is included as well, which is perfect for the kiddos in your life. No one likes to laugh more than a child. :)


There are explicit instructions included that take all of the guesswork out of the tricks for you. My youngest is 10-years-old and this book is so perfect for him. He just loves to be the one in the know, and being able to perform tricks others do not know how he could possibly do, is going to, I suspect, delight him.


There are also little tidbits of information that are interesting and fun to learn, like the fact that the US Supreme Court building has a basketball court. Anyone else picturing Justices Thomas and Ginsburg going head to head on the court after a challenging disagreement at the office? ;)


I think this book is educational and fun, and that's always the perfect combination. This hardcover, 80-page book is recommended for children ages 8-12.

In Fooled Ya!, Discover the variety of ways our brains can trick us, from optical illusions to magicians' masterful use of misdirection to strategies used by con artists. Learn why you can't always trust your brain, so you'll be less likely to be swindled, hoodwinked, or bamboozled. Along the way, Brian Z. Brain, an illustrated comic guide, will help explain how your mind works.

Sections include "Can You Trust Your Brain," "Fool the Five Senses," "How Magicians Mess with Your Mind," and "Learn to Be Less Gullible." Woven throughout are various articles that present interesting stories or facts from neuroscience, psychology, and history.

Learn more by visiting Quarto Knows, where you'll always find great book selections!
