The first book in Hoopoe’s “All About Me” series, Me and My Memory explores the mystery of our minds and memories. How do we remember? And how do we forget? In a clear and engaging way, the book summarizes everything that scientists and researchers know about the topic, and also explores questions that have yet to be answered.

Me and My Memory is illustrated with a cast of little robots who serve as guides on a journey through the world of memory.

Readers will begin to notice how their own and other people’s memories work. They’ll learn why memory is powerful but not perfect, and they’ll uncover strategies for improving it. Throughout the book, engaging activities that enhance these strategies are presented.

Written by high-school teacher Robert Guarino in a style that teens can understand and relate to, Me and My Memory can be used to supplement a high-school psychology course, or as a standalone “memory” unit to increase student productivity and improve study behavior in grades 8 through 12. The book offers a unique perspective for teachers, providing information to help guide their teaching techniques and improve retention and achievement in students.

This new edition has been revised to incorporate the latest research findings and meet the American Psychological Association’s National Standards for Psychology at the high-school level, the College Board AP Psychology standards and the National Board Standards for Science/Adolescence and Young Adulthood.
