Synopsis

I Wonder Why the Sahara Is Cold at Night And Other Questions about Deserts by Jackie Graff

Starting with the basic question of what a desert is, and proceeding through a wide variety of questions about the dry desert climate, desert animals, and the different ways humans use the desert, I Wonder Why the Sahara is Cold at Night is a great introduction to this important environment. The question and answer format gets young readers the information they want--like how rattlesnakes kill their prey--while opening up the opportunity for further discussion. The humorous illustrations, child-friendly text, and open-anywhere format make this series a great choice for reluctant readers.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
