Brain Benders: Seeing is Believing takes readers on a journey of optical illusions and mind tricks that will show readers just how their minds or their eyes can deceive them. On each page is one to four illusions or tricks with a full explanation of why or how the tricks and illusions work. On some pages, there are even explanations about how sometimes people see different things when they look at a certain object.
Dr. Gareth Moore has done a good job explaining how each optical illusion is made to work and why it works. These mind-boggling illusions and tricks show readers that there's more to an object than what the eye sees. The book has two to four optical illusions every time the reader turns the page. Each illusion is extraordinary in its own unique way. Some readers may see other things than what the book says they will see, but Dr. Moore explains that this can be more fun! This is a highly-recommended book that anyone in the Primary age group or above would enjoy!
