Children's Literature

answers are simply written, but they don't shy away from scientific language, difficult issues, or remaining mysteries.

    Fantastic Series

    This book is part of a many volume series designed to engage children with the world around them, stimulate their curiosity and to help parents answer the endless "Why, where and how" questions. Older children will love reading these books by themselves and the younger non-readers will love the illustrations. An excellent set of books to own!

    Snake book

    Very interesting and educational book. My 3 1/2 year old loves it! He's fascinated by the pictures and very anxious for me to what the pages say. Not scary pictures either.
