Fooled ya! How Your Brain Gets Tricked by Optical Illusions, Magicians, Hoaxes & More

Fooled Ya!: How Your Brain Gets Tricked by Optical Illusions, Magicians, Hoaxes & More by [Brown, Jordan D.]

By Jordan D. Brown
Moondance Press, 2017. 80 Pages. 
Informational. 

If you have a kid into magic- not of the Harry Potter wizardry variety- but card tricks and rabbits out of the hat, this is an excellent book to check out. It goes into detail about some of the tricks and common hoaxes that people use and show the slight of hand that makes it happen. It also goes into a brief overview of the brain and how your brain works to get tricked by these illusions. One of my favorite things about the book were the activities throughout that helped to apply the topics discussed.
