Full review at http://littleredreads.blogspot.com/20...

The true test of a book at our house it how my children receive it. My oldest son, 7, took the book around with him every where for a good week reading aloud from its pages. We learned about holidays in different countries, what an adam's apple is, and customs around the world. Then I found him making paper boomerangs from instructions within and eventually he even cooked up some pudding pops all on his own. The Big Book of What kept him hig

When I read about this book, I was intrigued. My oldest just turned 9, and she’s very, very curious about things. She asks all sorts of questions, and I don’t always know how to explain something to her. So, when I saw this book, I thought it sounded great. And I was right! There are tons of questions – with answers, of course – covering a variety of topics (animals, inventions, space, the future, and more). And these are questions my kids have asked occasionally. The most relevant for my family ...more

Who says it’s only kids who want to know the answers to these questions? I lingered over this book, reading a couple of pages every day, for months, sharing whole paragraphs with my husband at the breakfast table, reciting key facts to my walking buddies, and telling total strangers on the train little tidbits from this delicious book.

It answers such important questions as, “What Should You Do if You Run into a Bear in the Wild?” and “What fish communicates through farting?” and “What are some

This answers 801 questions of what kids want to know about. Ever wonder what chewing gum is made out of and what did people in history use for gum before orbit? Ever wonder what cultures celebrate as different holidays? What I liked about this book was how these were all questions answered throughout history and some were even given an experiment to try along after reading this book. After reading this book, the audience will feel like a detective uncovering the true facts over time. I decided t ...more

Shelves: non-fiction
Big book of What was the best non-fiction book I read before. It has all the important facts and amazing facts. This book is good for reading for fun, practicing facts, and reading practice. So this book is really helpful. I recommend this book to everyone. No matter if they are young or old, short or tall. This book has different sections, so it can help people find where they want to read about. I liked the mystery zone. There was this girl who said she saw a fairy. She took several pictures a ...more
