Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Why do you burp? Why don't marbles bounce? For over 30 years, children have been asking Highlights science editor Jack Myers questions about everything under, about and beyond the sun. Along with Myers's good-humored, easy-to-understand answers and boisterous, cartoonish illustrations from a variety of illustrators, these queries have been gathered together in Highlights Book of Science Questions That Children Ask.
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
This compilation of previously published science questions and answers focuses on the answers to questions about animals, human bodies and minds, and the physical world. Some of the answers are succinctly written direct answers to the question posed. Other discussions are less so and therefore seem inadequate and perhaps a bit condescending. But, for the young researcher who is him/herself a perpetual question machine, this work might prove to be just right for both the curious child and his/her beleaguered adult resource.
