Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Highly photographic and playful, this big book is an adventure in exploration and will make long car rides seem like a quick trip around the corner!” –Woman of Many Roles blog
Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
When young readers start asking every question imaginable, this is the book to turn to. Lots of "why" questions are addressed in this book. It is filled with the amazing photography that National Geographic is so well known for. Every page is filled with pictures. The questions are divided up into categories: Amazing Me, How Things Work, Animals All Around, and Wonder of the World. Questions range from "why do I have a belly button?" to "why do owls throw up?" Each question is covered on a full page or on a two page spread. The answers to the questions feature photos, captions, answers in a short text, experiments, and diagrams. Back matter includes parent tips with extra information, a glossary, additional reading, websites, and an index. This is highly recommended for the home library and would make a great gift for a young inquisitive child who cannot yet handle lengthy text. It would also make a great addition to a classroom library where it could be used to help students see how to create a research question and go about displaying the answer using different nonfiction text features.
