Publishers Description
History homework getting you down? Too much to learn? Names? Dates? Important events? Hang in there! Help is on the way! Adroitly reducing reams of boring data about our nation s past to a generous selection of over-the-top verses, Carol Diggory Shields presents our history with incisive hilarity. Here, for example, is her wry interpretation of the Louisiana Purchase:
Tom Jefferson went shopping for a city one fine day
Something in the South with a harbor or a bay,
Voila! said the French, The city of your dreams!
For only 15 million, we will sell you New Orleans.

Nutritionally balanced, guaranteed pure, 100hrefreshing, and cleverly distilled future BrainJuice topics will include biography, literature, and geography.

More About Carol Diggory Shields

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Carol Diggory Shields is the author of more than twenty books for children, including "Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp "and "The Bugliest Bug, "both illustrated by Scott Nash. It was time spent with her three grandbabies that inspired her to write about the challenges of being small and entirely dependent on others. As the sister of a musician, she couldn t help but imagine a baby s woes expressed in bluesy lyrics! Carol Diggory Shields lives in California.
Lauren Tobia says that illustrating "Baby s Got the Blues "transported her back to the time when her own children were quite young, and even made her reminisce about her own childhood, when she was the big sister. Lauren Tobia is the illustrator of the Anna Hibiscus books, written by Atinuke. She lives in England."

Carol Diggory Shields currently resides in Salinas, in the state of California.

Emerging Questions!  Jul 1, 2005
My 10 year old daughter has an interest in the history of the American Revolution. As a result, I purchased BRAIN JUICE AMERICAN HISTORY FRESH SQUEEZED. To pass the time on a plane ride, I started reading some of the poems to her. After I stopped, she started asking questions like, "Who is FDR?" "What do CCC and WPA stand for?" She wanted to know more about the Great Depression and how the stock market works. BRAIN JUICE opened the flood gates of questions and learning under the guise of playtime.

I suspect that BRAIN JUICE would be a wonderful tool for history teachers. The poems will get students to ask questions and learn about history in a painless manner. I hope the Shields will do the same thing for science.
Excellent  Jul 29, 2003
My children (9 & 11) and I love this book! You'll be amazed at what you can learn from this creative poetry. Reading this book will probably be the most fun you ever have learning about people and events in American History. It's pretty short, so you'll likely finish the entire book in one sitting, but it's SO CUTE! My daughter took this book to school to share with her class. I'm hoping to find more poetry of this sort from Carol Diggory Shields. You'll love it!
