Review

"An ideal self-discovery resource for children, families, and teachers."--Children's Advocate

About the Author

Jonni Kincher was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Colorado and California. She received her education in psychology at California State University, San Bernardino. Her interest in psychology began when she was in third grade, but there weren't many psychology books for young children back then,so she designed special courses in academic psychology for third grade through high school and created her own materials.

Format: Paperback
This book does have a lot of self-discovery experiments- in fact that's pretty much all it has. There isn't much information included to validate the experiments or to explain why they are significant to psychology. However, the book does refer you to other sources. I ordered the book, hoping to use it with my High School Gifted class but found that the text was a bit too juvenille. This book could be a good supplement to a psychology unit, but it is not something from which to teach.

great resource! Aug. 10 2004
By V. Zilinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We live our whole childhood trying to figure out who we really are, and now there is a book to help our kids explore their personalities even deeper. It contains 40 fun and easy-to-follow psychological tests that offer a wide range of insights into a child's personality. At the end of the book, there is a summary sheet to tie together all the results in a nice and easy to understand manner. This is a great book for parents to share with their grade-school kids, and the best thing about these tests is that there are NO WRONG ANSWERS!!

great for the budding pre-teen psychologists May 9 2010
By thelegalalien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a perfect introductory book for an upper-elementary or middle-school student who is developing an interest in psychology.

It concentrates on self-discovery and self-awareness and consists mainly of various personality tests. Those are very well done. They are engaging and child-friendly, yet also manage to plug in concepts and relate the tests to real life, without overloading the reader with academic language or emotionally heavy material. Conceptually, it is accurate and, while simple, not at all dumbed down.

It also gives ideas for projects, essays and assignments to link the material with the rest of the curriculum. The books has a few illustrations (black-and-white cartoons).

To make it clear, you will NOT find information on theoretical and experimental psychology in this book, no name dropping and theory outlines, no experimental design or discussion of famous experiments, etc. This is not a textbook, and even as a supplementary reading will likely be too juvenile for a high-schooler.

The best way to read this book is to take a chapter or two at a time, go through it together with your kid, compare your test results and discuss anything related to the topic that comes to your mind: give more depth to the definitions, discuss problems that may arise in this or that, try and figure out how you would study that if you were an experimental psychologist, etc.

Enjoy this book!

Great counseling product! July 17 2012
By ED - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've used this product for years in counseling groups for kids. It's great! Kids love the activities. They break down bigger concepts, like self-esteem, into smaller bites which kids can understand.

A detailed journey of various tests and puzzles for kids to explore and discover themselves. Presented in an interesting format, this resource can also be used by teachers to implement into their teaching curriculum. Excellent tool to serve as an aid for mental health clinicians as well. A must for those helping children to understand themselves.
