How I could I not mention this wonderful memory enhancing book on a day such as today, September, 30. I never pass up an opportunity to make life easier — with categories such as Excellent English; Hot on History; Geography Genius: Time, Weather, and Science; and magnificent Math; remembering everything is as easy as A…B…C…!

For old times sake:

Thirty days has September,
April June, and November.
All the rest have thirty-one
Excepting February alone,
And that has twenty-eight days clear,
With twenty-nine in each leap year.

And one more in honor of changing the clocks on November 1, 2009, at 2:00am:

Spring forward, fall back.
Or,
Forward in March, back in November
And that is all you need to remember!

I have to say that I love the disclaimer: The publisher and author disclaim as far as is legally permissible, all liability for accidents or injuries or loss that may occur as a result of information or instructions given in this book. Stay within law and local rules, and be considerate of other people.

Publisher’s synopsis: Packaged like the New York Times bestselling “Best at Everything” series, this informative guide is full of tips and tricks for remembering everything from math and spelling rules to tricky science, history, and geography facts. A lovely gift from parent to child and a perfect learning companion to help any student who has ever struggled to remember his multiplication tables, the spelling of the word “Mississippi,” or the names of the planets.

  • Kids are too addicted to TV and are influenced way too much by decadent pop stars so when a good book like this surfaces, it’s regarded like an oasis of knowledge in today’s culture. Thanks for this review.
