Steve Martin is the Man!
Who would have thought that Steve Martin would be able to help my students and my own kids with so much! This book is written in a way that not only makes it enjoyable, but it is filled with information that we would never remember as a kid! Buy this for that child (or adult) who has everything and needs to know so much more!

Good for a Class Library
I Wish I Knew That by Steve Martin, Dr. Mike Goldsmith and Marianne Taylor is a book that will put you in front of the class.
This book contained the following subjects:
- Classic Reads
- How Land is Shaped and Changed
- Math Stuff
- Science at a Glance
- History Stuff
- AND MORE!
Get an overview of children's literature classics like The Wind in the Willows or Call of the Wild. Learn about the world's tallest mountain, largest sea and longest river. Get a refresher in geometry. Find out more about Dmitri Medeleyev, creator of the periodic table. Learn about early explorers, get the main points from important wars, and have a list of all the countries and their capitals.
Between this book and "I Used to Know That" I liked this one a little better. It had some really neat information that would be useful to teachers and parents alike. This is one I would add to a school library collection. But it's not something I would read again unless I was looking for particular information.
