Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In short, this book is everything you always wanted to know about . . . well, everything, and then some.

The text is written with a lively vocabulary that pushes teens and tweens to expand their minds and challenge their reading levels. This is definitely one for the science, reading, art, or language classroom." – New York Journal of Books

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
Anyone who has spent even a small amount of time with young people has heard them ask the question, “Why?” In fact, rarely does this query arise only once. If you happen to offer an answer, expect to hear it followed up by the same question: “Why?” Folks at the National Geographic Society decided to do something about the unending curiosity of our small humans. Full of humor, photographs, facts, and answers, each double-page spread of this large volume hits the eyes. Readers have plenty to keep their attention while quenching their thirst for knowledge. Even parents and other adults may find themselves captivated as they learn new things about their world, like why the sky is blue and why the tower at Pisa leans. Boyer deftly uses an active voice to keep his content-laden narrative engaging. Whether writing about history, animals, or technology, his diction embodies the National Geographic tone we have come to know and love. Certainly, elementary school teachers will want to have this volume on their bookshelves to keep the minds of their students sharp even during down time. Actually, they may find that one copy may not be enough to satisfy their little ones’ queries. Reviewer: Remy Dou; Ages 6 to 10.
