TIME for Kids Big Book of What? is a hard book to put down. Just ask my 9-year-old twin daughters, who held this book hostage for weeks. It came to school with us, followed us to the park, made its way to our friends’ houses and became a huge topic of conversation everywhere we went.
Did you know that the most deadly animal in the world is the mosquito and hippos are second? Did you know that Tom Cruise, Keira Knightly and Jewel are just some of the famous people with dyslexia? Did you know that haggis is a Scottish delicacy made from the heart, liver and lungs of a sheep, cooked in its stomach lining? Did you know that the chocolate-chip cookie was a result of a happy accident? Give this book to your little reader, sit back and get ready to be amazed at all that you will learn about animals, space, the human body, weather and climate, food, and more.
