The fourth book in the All About Me series, What We See And Don’t See explores perception. It will help young people learn how our brain makes sense of the world, how it simplifies and organizes information. They’ll discover how we see what we see and, sometimes, don’t see what is obviously in front of us; how our five senses can be “extended” and our perception enhanced. There is more to perception than what meets the eye (or ear, or nose, or…) and, very importantly, our culture can influence how we experience it all.

Written in a clear and accessible style by educator and author, Robert Guarino, What We See And Don’t See is illustrated by Jeff Jackson with an engaging cast of characters, who act out and embody the various ways to help readers to become more aware of how they perceive the world and to understand why they do some of the things they do, why we see some things and not others. With this knowledge, we can take control of how we behave and of the decisions we make, and learn how to “keep the bear at bay.”

In What We See And Don’t See, young people will discover what scientists and researchers know about perception, and will explore profound questions yet to be answered. Illustrative quotes from real-life circumstances, from historical records, examples from the worlds of art and literature, as well as simple and fun activities the reader can do to relate to the concepts presented, make the book truly come alive for young people. Also included are suggested activities for teachers to use in the classroom. What We See And Don’t See can be used to supplement a high school psychology course, or as a stand-alone unit in grades 8 through 12.

“Is perception reality, or is there more to our sights than we know? ‘What We See And Don’t See’ is an exploration of the senses and our world, as Robert Guarino teams with illustrator Jeff Jackson to bring young readers into a fun ride through their senses and what they see and hear out of their lives, humoring them with activities to help them explore their senses and go beyond what they can and cannot do. Uplifting and highly educational, ‘What We See And Don’t See’ is a must for teen psychology and self-help collections, not to be missed.”
