Ellen DeGeneres invited 3-year-old Brielle of California on to her daytime show this week, where the young girl wowed the host with her ability to recite the elements on the periodic table, as well as explain their significance. The whiz kid can recite all of the presidents (President Barack Obama is her favorite because “he was president when I was born,” she said), all of the states and capitals in the United States, as well as every country in Africa and Europe. How does Brielle manage to retain such a wealth of knowledge without yet being able to read?
“My little brain just remembers,” she told DeGeneres.
