Life's Little Mysteries: Answers to Fascinating Questions About the World Around You by Jerry Ropelato, Emily Sanderson, The Writers at Life's Little Mysteries www.LifesLittleMysteries.com, Bryan Green
Have you ever seen a news story on TV or in the newspaper that left you with unanswered questions? Did you ever wonder about something that you never got around to looking up? Life's Little Mysteries was designed to satisfy your curiosity. First as an online magazine and now compiled in this book, we answer questions about a variety of interesting subjects including Body and Mind, Creatures, Culture, Earth, Space, Entertainment, Money, Sports, Technology, and Weird topics. Perhaps your child is in the "Why" stage of life: "Daddy, why do fireflies light up?" or "Mommy, why is Daddy bald?" Grade-schoolers may have different questions, such as, "What causes the tides?" or "What's it like to live in space?" As a certified source of knowledge about all mysteries, you'd better know the answers for your kids, and we can help. Designed for families, this book is fun to share aloud with human beings of all ages. We find that an answer to one question often spurs new ones, so our book provides answers to some questions you may not have thought of, such as "Why don't woodpeckers get headaches?", "What are the best MacGyver stunts?", "Why is the sky blue?" and "Why are marathons 26.2 miles long?" Our answers are meant to entertain while they inform, and they are sure to Provoke at least an occasional chuckle. Enjoy this book on a lazy afternoon on your back porch, begin conversations at a party with it, or use it in the classroom. Did curiosity really kill the cat? We don't think so.
