Why do dogs bark?
Why is the sky blue?
Do you care for or have kids? Then chances are you’ve encountered the ‘Why’ query now and again. Maybe you know how tunnels are built, or how clouds float, but what if you don’t?
Well, lucky for you there’s The Handy Answer Book for Kids (and Parents). This book has the answer to those and nearly 800 additional queries with enough depth and detail to both satisfy the curiosity of persistent young inquisitors and provide parents with a secure sense of a job well done.
Written with a child’s imagination in mind, this easy-to-understand book permits kids to help themselves because it’s organized by simple topical chapters: Outer Space; Planet Earth and Our Moon; Creatures Big and Small; Plant Life; People around the World; Politics and Government; How Things Work; Math, Measurement, and Time; All about My Body; and Daily Life. This book invites parents/grandparents/caregivers to turn those uncertain opportunities into valuable one-on-one learning experiences.
As a mother who has a four year old daughter at home, this was a book I needed when my other two daughters were this age. This book has almost every question a young child will ask you growing up! Some of the questions were common and some had me laughing so hard my side hurt! Great for the child stages of who?,what?,when?where, and how?
Here are just a sampling of questions that were in the book:
What are boogers?
Why do we pass gas?
Why do we burp and hiccup?
How old is Earth?
What airport is the busiest in the world?
This book has the funny questions, the red face questions and all the science questions we don’t know how to answer. This is one book that will be on my bookshelf that will be passed to my kids when they have kids of their own! I loved this book!
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf For Rereading!
