Format: Hardcover
This is definitely a useful book to have with you. It is full of simple tools that are fun as well helping you remember facts and rules in various subjects including geography, history, math, reading, spelling and music. As you thumb through the book, you can find acronyms, acrostics and rhymes to help you along. Kids will love the memory aids as they will appeal to their sense of humor with `I Am A Silly Person' to remember the five oceans - Indian, Arctic, Atlantic, Southern, and Pacific!
For example, Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally helps you remember the order of math operations - Parantheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction
There are fun mnemonics to remember the presidents, planets, rules of math and music and more. This book is written with kids in mind but adults definitely will not mind having such a useful memory aid next to them.
Both my nine year old and I enjoyed this book and will be using it to remember cool facts and to learn how to remember too.

Thanks to a little volume titled I Before E (Except after C): Old-School Ways to Remember Stuff, I will never again be embarrassed--or have to think twice--about the way I spell "embarrass" or "weird," two words that never look correct no matter how I spell them. I Before E, written by Judy Parkinson and published by Readers Digest Books, is a compendium of mnemonic devices that includes all manner of facts from spelling to lifesaving and beyond, along with cues to help remember them ("Do you turn Really Red and Smile Shyly when embarrassed" reminds us of the double r and s; "Weird doesn't follow the i before e rule, because weird is just weird" reminds us that...well...weird is weird).

Susan Randol supplies memory tips to the younger set in I Before E (Except after C) for Kids: Easy, Cool Ways to Remember Facts, also published by Readers Digest Books. Some of the suggestions are similar to the adult version (embarrass: "I turn Really Red and Silently Shake when I'm embarrassed"; "WE are considered WEird"), but there is a plethora of memory aids for things that are important for kids to know (if they want to appear as intelligent as they really are).

Rhymes, puns, and silly sentences along with a variety of visual cues are provided for reading, writing, history, math, music, our planet, clocks, calendars, and the sky. How wonderful to have such an easy resource when trying to memorize (oooh, that awful word) lists of countries or states, rules of grammar, and the three types of triangles ("Everyone Is Someone" = Equilateral, Isosceles, and Scalene).

Remembering back too many years to laboring over the thirteen original colonies--I'd always leave one out and Father would insist I start over...and over...and over--I wish I had I Before E (Except after C) for Kids: Easy, Cool Ways to Remember Facts. Although...its advice does help me get through some senior moments.

Book Review: I before E except after C for Kids

This book has lots of cool tricks to remember things. It is a great book for my kids. I home school my children and this book will help them out to remember some things easier. I got this book for free to download on my Kindle Fire but I would love to have a hard copy so my kids can go through the book themselves. There are a few tricks that I knew as a child and it was fun to see the old ones I knew and new ones that I have never seen.

Book Description
Age Level: 9 and up Grade Level: 4 and up Series: I Wish I Knew That
Just like adults, kids need easy ways to recall stuff-especially now, when they don't even have to remember a phone number because their cell phones remember it for them. And just like the bestselling i before e (except after c) for adults, this book is jammed with easy-to-use tricks for remembering lots of stuff-especially stuff they need to know for school. Through entertaining (and often silly) examples, kids will learn to remember everything they need to know about:
The Earth-including fun facts about geography, geology, and the weather- and the sky -revolving around planets, stars, atmosphere, and so on
Reading and writing-covering everything from the smallest punctuation mark to the prickliest words to spell to the trickiest grammar to the grandest figure of speech
The mysteries of history-from Way Before You Were Born (ancient history) to the most recent American history facts every kid needs to memorize
Math and music-a surprising, but logical combination that examines cool ways to remember numbers, times tables, calculations, and musical notations

Kids will like learning fun ways to remember stuff and will love getting the good grades that follow.

Format: Hardcover
This fun book is designed to help you remember facts in three main ways: Acronyms, Acrostics and Rhymes. Acronyms are made by taking the first letter(s) from a series of words. For example, Public Broadcasting System becomes PBS. Acrostics are made by using the first letter of what you need to remember and making a sentence out of it. For example, the common acrostic for learning the names of the notes on the lines of the treble clef (E G B D F) is Every Good Boy Does Fine. Rhymes are used to help get the information stuck in your head. For example, if you need to remember a list of names put it tune of a familiar song like "Row, Row, Row, Your Boat."

Parents, children and teachers will love this book. If you are a hands-on parent you will be able to really help your child in school using the tips and examples from this book. As I read through, I learned facts that I didn't know. The book shows how to remember the first astronauts who walked on the moon. It says it's as easy as remembering your ABC's. A is for Neil Armstrong, B is for Buzz Aldrin and C is for Michael Collins. I didn't know that Michael Collins was on that list.

Children who like to soak up facts will be able to use this book to get more knowledge in their brains. I could see a child who doesn't care for school enjoying this book because it makes learning facts fun. Students who could care less about the order the Confederate states seceded from the Union will be able to memorize them anyway. The states are South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina and Tennessee. The book suggests to use a fun, silly acrostic sentence like So My Friend Ate Giant Lizards Tuesday; Vomited All Night Tuesday.
