Synopsis

The Book of Why by Martine Laffon, Hortense De Chabaneix

Why do we cry? Why is the sky blue? Why must children obey their parents? Find out the answers to these and many more questions in this clever road-trip book, in the tradition of the bestseller The Way Things Work. In this fact-filled book, difficult questions are broken down and explained in persuasive, fun language that kids will relate to. Great for summer reading and back-seat entertainment, this book tackles the perennial puzzling questions and even provides a few important lessons in the process. Why does fire burn? What is infinity? Can wishes come true? These and 80 other burning questions are thoughtfully answered in this well-researched book.

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!

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.
