TIME For Kids BIG Book of What is a must-have book to satisfy the most curious of kids
My Thoughts: When I read about this book, I was intrigued. My oldest just turned 9, and she’s very, very curious about things. She asks all sorts of questions, and I don’t always know how to explain something to her. So, when I saw this book, I thought it sounded great. And I was right! There are tons of questions – with answers, of course – covering a variety of topics (animals, inventions, space, the future, and more). And these are questions my kids have asked occasionally. The most relevant for my family at this point are:
- What Are the Differences between African and Asian Elephants?
- What Is a Blue Moon?
- What Is an Adam’s Apple?
- What Are the Northern Lights?
- What Is the Difference between a Fruit and a Vegetable?
- What Is the Longest a Person Can Survive Without Water?
- What Is Mancala?
- What Is Mardi Gras?
These are just some of the questions my kids have asked that this book has answered! (Yes, the Adam’s Apple question did come up! LOL) I know what all of these are, but not necessarily how to explain it to a child. This book is a lifesaver for these situations! Plus, there are even some activities that go along with some of the questions:
- Create a Solar Eclipse
- Make Smoothie Pops
- Make Your Own Mancala Board
- Make Your Own Boomerang
There are a few others, too. We will be trying some of these soon.
If you have inquisitive kids, this book will help a ton. I would highly recommend this for parents everywhere who don’t always know exactly how to explain the answers to some of kids’ toughest questions.
