The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fun and brilliantly compiled reference tool that answers all those niggly little questions that children put to adults all the time and often parents can’t answer.

This really is a one-stop shop for a child to absorb many a fascinating fact without being a boffin.


101 Things You Need To Know and Some You Don't by Richard Horne, Tracey Turner

Explains 101 marvellous facts: why do we have nails? Why is the sky blue? Why can birds stand on electric wires and not be electrocuted? This title enables you to educate your child with minimum effort, and is suitable for children who do not want to be boring when they grow old.
