The brain is our most important organ and perhaps the least well understood. It’s the command station for our body controlling what we think, what we feel and what we do. This colouring book seeks to increase our understanding of the brain in a succinct engaging way using text, images, brain maps and cartoons.
It will give second-level pupils and adults alike an insight into how the brain works and into its central role together with the nervous system in directing how our whole body operates. Colouring books are increasingly popular today and used widely in the development of mindfulness and well-being. This book will be a welcome Irish language resource in these areas.
Originally published as Journey through the Brain by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland with grant assistance from the Knowledge Exchange and Dissemination Scheme of the Health Research Board.

A set of stickers illustrated by Sheena Dempsey accompany each book.
