Sinarski's Your Amazing Brain goes way deeper than neurons and neurotransmitters by also exploring the parts of the brain that are responsible for behaviors and relationships. She partners with illustrator Luis Fernando Da Silva to playfully bring kids (and their grown-ups) the most up-to-date neuroscience so they can compassionately take charge of their brain.
