Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Selma to the State Department, Sojourner Truth to Kofi Annan and a language called Xhosa--how well do you know black history? What singer was known as "the Empress of the Blues"? Why the Missouri Compromise? Challenge yourself, challenge your friends, challenge your parents. BLACK HISTORY celebrates 5,000 years of heroism, culture, struggle and achievement.

Synopsis:

Smarter. Fresher. Better.

And now with new content, and new packaging.

Announcing the relaunch of Brain Quest, America’s #1 educational bestseller with over 23.7 million copies in print. Featuring a complete updating of the content and an eye-catching, brainy-retro new look, this is a dazzling makeover, inside and out.

For kids, it’s fun unplugged. For parents, it’s the easiest, most trusted way to know if their children are keeping pace. Assisting in the relaunch is an advisory panel of ten of America’s top educators, each of them winners of Teacher of the Year or Milken National Educator Awards. The result: completely revised questions and answers, with up to 20%new material, to bring each deck up to the standards of today’s curricula. The content is the same that kids will find on standardized tests, handled in such a way that it promotes mental flexibility.
