Description

Fact-filled, fun-filled, as interesting to parents as it is to kids, the How Come? series is the trusted source for lively, clear answers to kids’ science queries. Now the best questions and answers from all three books—How Come?; How Come? Planet Earth; and How Come? In the Neighborhood—have been revised, updated, freshly illustrated in full color, supplemented with twenty completely new questions, and combined into one bigger, better volume.

How Come? explains, in fascinating detail, more than 200 mysteries and phenomena in the world around us. These are the questions that pique kids’ curiosity—and stump parents.

When it rains, does running (rather than walking) to the nearest shelter really keep you any drier?

How can a stone skip across a pond (instead of sink)?

If the Earth is spinning, why can’t we feel it? Why don’t we fly off?

Why do elephants have trunks?

And the all-time classic, Why is the sky blue? (Sunlight has a hidden rainbow of colors, and air molecules scatter blues the most—sending bright blue light down to Earth.)

The text is clearly written, engaging, and accessible. It’s for every kid who wants to know—and every grown-up who simply doesn’t know.

Fact-filled, fun-filled, as interesting to parents as it is to kids, the How Come? series is the trusted source for lively, clear answers to kids’ science queries. Now the best questions and answers...

Title: How Come? Every Kid's Science Questions Explained Author: Kathy Wollard Illustrated By: Debra Solomon Published: 12-30-2014 Publisher: Workman Publishing Company Pages: 416 Genre: Children's Nonfiction Sub Genre: Anatomy & Physiology; Earth Sciences; How Things Work ISBN: 9780761179788 ASIN: B00KLDEKXY Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . Have you lived through the Why is the grass green? The Sky Blue? Why can't ostriches fly? How do rockets Work? and the million other questions parents and caregivers are asked every day. Now there is a book that can answer those questions for you. Scientific answers are given that encourage those seeking answers to explore and search for the answers. Sometimes beyond the answers from the book. How Come? Every Kid's Science Questions Explained may not answer all their questions and may even incite new ones; but at least it will give you and others looking for answers a place to start. It says it is for kids, but I disagree it can be used by anyone of any age. A 5 out of 5 star rating.
