A Yiddishe Kop 2×2: Visual Brainteasers for the Keen Eye and Sharp Mind
Gadi Pollack’s newest volume of investigative illustrations, A Yiddishe Kop 2×2, is continuing the thinking revolution of the first volume. Just as with the first ‘A Yiddishe Kop’, your child will discover hours of enjoyment – thinking, discovering details, analyzing information, and drawing conclusions. It’s intellectual development at its best!
A Yiddishe Kop 2×2 features fifteen full-spread illustrations of real-life scenarios common to Torah-observant communities, each accompanied by ten brain-teasing questions. Finding the clues and answering these questions requires a keen eye, logical reasoning, and broad thinking. Your child will need to develop creative thinking, learn how to think “out of the box,” and to see the world from entirely new points of view.
“A Yiddishe Kop” is far more than Yiddish for, “A Jewish Head”. It is a concept that crosses languages and cultures-that lives at the intersection of intelligence, imagination and wit. “A Yiddishe Kop” embodies the zest for challenge, the yearning for truth and clarity, and the honing of lucid deductive reasoning through the application of Jewish and worldly knowledge.
The first volume was definitely one of a kind, but Gadi Pollack has made history twice with “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2“, the second in this brain teasing series. In “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2”, you will find entirely new scenes, engaging questions and an answer key in the back of the book. For obvious reasons, you mustn’t peek at the answers! There is no choice but to fire up you Yiddishe Kop and go full steam ahead.
Parents seeking creative, wholesome and stimulating entertainment for their children, will find what they are looking for in “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2”. Parents shouldn’t be surprised if they find themselves pouring over the pictures with wrinkled foreheads even before their children have had a chance to hold the book! This is the feedback we received from the previous volume and it takes no stretch of the imagination to assume “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2” will produce the same results.
Put this book in the bookcase, but it won’t stay there for long. “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2” will swiftly find its way to the table, come to rest on a child’s knee and grab the attention of curious and intelligent eyes. “A Yiddishe Kop 2×2” offer hours of intelligent clue-finding fun for your entire family.
