    Why was the Civil War fought? Why did the Titanic sink so fast?

    Why was the Civil War fought? Why did the Titanic sink so fast? Why is an area in Beijing, China, called the Forbidden City? So many questions - so little time! Fortunately, Time for Kids has made it possible to answer those questions quickly when they introduced this awesome series of books answering so many questions kids (and adults!) ask.

    This book, focusing on people and places, answers questions about regions all over the world. Want to know some interesting facts about China? It's in here. How about Australia? Yup, you'll find snippets about the 'Land Down Under' too. There are so many neat facts in this book that I suspect everyone reading this book, child or parent, will learn something. Did you know the London Bridge is actually in Arizona? You'll learn what happened to the bridge and how it wound up at Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Ever wonder how various US cities got their nicknames? From 'The Big Easy' to 'The Windy City,' it's in here.

    The first half of the book is devoted to history (the Trojan War, Civil War, etc.) and the final half is about people and places. While reading through the book, however, chances are you'll be too busy reading all the interesting facts to notice how the book is arranged.

    The first thing that struck me about this book was how much information was packed into 48 short pages. It's a LOT! And with its eye-appealing design, it's a lot of fun to read. Really Cool People & Places is the sort of book that is easy to flip back and forth, reading pieces of one page then moving on to the next fact that catches your eye. While there is not much detail about any of the topics, the facts are enough to grab a child's attention and encourage further research.

    Quill says: Really Cool People & Places is part of a fantastic series for kids. Don't miss these books!
