Synopsis

How Things Work Facts and Fun Questions and Answers Things to Make and Do by Okido

How Things Work is a hands-on, action-packed title to share with young children. The starting point is the child and the questions they ask about how things work, from how to build a house to what powers a rocket to reach the moon. The title is organized around key questions: Whats it made from? Hows it made? What makes things go? What makes things move? What are sound and light? How do we keep in touch? How big or small? Who does what? There are things to do both on and off the page, including games, recipes and craft activities. The book is aimed at children of four and over to use at pre-school, school and at home.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
