Latest Brainy News
Since I appealed for feedback on my last issue on what you'd like to see in BrainyZine,
I received many feedbacks from subscribers like you. Some expressed the interest to see
more on brain building games and activities, crucial nutrition for brain development,
while others are interested to find out more information concerning preparation for
pre-schooling. I have to thank you for your important feedback.
While I can't guarantee I can supply those information on every issue, but I'll try my best.
The main areas of focus on BrainyZine will be on child brain development
and early childhood development, which I personally believe are the
most vital to the overall development of a child. Anyway, if you have other opinions,
please don't hesitate to share with me. Take care.
