It's been available to buy in Australia for the past month, and now it's available everywhere else - it's Quincey Quokka's Quest!
Follow Quincey Quokka’s Quest to make his way back home to his Mum and Dad. Along the way he must cross many habitats and encounter many creatures, but not all of them want to help Quincey. But you can.
Through this book children help Quincey through a series of activities that require them to remember, control their actions and exert control over their thinking. In doing so, children gain valuable experience in support of their cognitive development.
Dr Steven Howard is an expert on the cognitive development of children in the preschool and primary school years. The book is designed to help develop children’s abilities to control their thoughts and behaviours – abilities that have been implicated in school readiness, academic success, impulse control, social competence, peer acceptance and proficiency in learning more generally. “Put simply, the ability to self-regulate in early childhood sets the stage for a wide range of abilities and achievements in later life,” Dr Howard said.
