LearningRx Chattanooga Partners With Award-Winning Children’s Author
Monday, November 2, 2020
LearningRx, a personal brain training company, along with their local Center in Chattanooga, have partnered with an award-winning author to launch a new book to help students overcome learning (and life) obstacles. The book is titled, "My Fantabulous Brain: Learning Helps Me Grow!"
Officials said, "Learning doesn’t come easy for many children. Especially during these unusual times. They struggle with schoolwork, have trouble focusing and can’t make sense of instructions. Oftentimes, these challenges can cause children to internalize struggles and question their abilities."
In "My Fantabulous Brain: Learning Helps Me Grow!" (National Center for Youth Issues, Nov.
5), award-winning children’s author, counselor and parenting expert Julia Cook, M.S. reminds children that learning struggles aren’t a permanent label and there are ways to tune-up your brain. The book helps explain learning challenges and the concept of a “brain trainer” while providing the symbolism of a “brain toolbox” to strengthen core cognitive skills and build confidence. The 32-page book is geared to readers ages seven to 12.
Book summary: Wade doesn’t understand why things like math and spelling seem so easy for other kids but so hard for him. His brain doesn’t seem to work right, and he can’t focus with all the stuff going on in his head. He tries so hard but feels like he stinks at everything. Just when he is about to give up, Wade’s Fantabulous Brain comes to the rescue. By using tools in his “Brain Toolbox,” Wade learns how to give his brain a tune-up, making it stronger and more efficient. He also visits a LearningRx Brain Trainer—a special brain mechanic—who teaches him how to work smarter, not harder. With a little time and a lot of hard work, Wade is amazed what he can accomplish when he and his Fantabulous Brain work together.

Now, more than ever, kids need to feel positive and empowered about schoolwork and their academic achievements. Julia Cook, who has written dozens of books that empower children through positive learning and life lessons, poured her heart and hope into this encouraging storyline,” says LearningRx Director Michelle Hecker Davis. “More than 100,000 LearningRx clients have experienced life-changing results from personalized one-on-one brain training, which not only yields stronger brain skills, but also a huge boost in our graduates’ confidence. We’re excited to be partnering with Julia and feel confident that this book will inspire the families and children who need extra encouragement during this unusual school year.”
