Review: This Book Can Read Your Mind

I’ve been waiting for this day. I knew it would come. I have to admit I thought it would be some kind of robot or machine or super human, but there is now a book that can read your mind!

This Book can Read Your Mind is a fun and funny picture book that can literally read your mind. 

You have to be careful because whatever you are thinking will appear on the page, and the book knows!

So don’t think about pink elephants or silly pants or unicycles, because, well, you know what’s going to happen. 

But don’t worry, there’s a super smart scientist to guide you through the mind-reading experience. He is there on every page to help you not think about the things you shouldn’t think about. He chats to you throughout, gives you advice and he’ll try to steer you in the right direction, away from the silly thoughts that might put you and everyone around you in danger. How nice is that?

This book is sure to get the kids giggling (thank you word master Susannah Lloyd), and Jacob Grant brings even more fun and funky to the book with bright and colourful illustrations throughout. 

This is a great one for a crowd or classroom as it gets the audience involved on every page. Fun, funny, funky. Just remember not to think about pink elephants!
