|How Come? Every Kid's Science Questions Explained Price: $11.95 Write a review | No reviews for this product.|
All the queries in this book of questions and answers were asked by real kids, who mailed and e-mailed them to Wollard's newspaper column, "How Come?" Organized into four loose categories, entitled "Turbulent Earth" (about deserts, oceans, icebergs, fog, volcanoes... anything to do with Earth), "Safari" (about animals), "Bodyworks" (about people), and "Factory Field Trip" (about things we make, such as bubble gum and diamonds), this original science reference book explains 125 mysteries of Planet Earth. A follow-up to the bestselling How Come?, Wollard's How Come? Planet Earth follows a similar format. Each two- or three-page chapter describes an earthly phenomenon in accurate, entertaining, easy-to-understand terms, with accompanying goofball cartoons by Debra Solomon. Grownups who have found themselves at a loss when children ask "Why are my fingers wrinkly after a bath?" or "How do jet airplanes fly?" will appreciate this collection of solutions as much as the curious young readers themselves. Browse at will, or read it cover to cover - the answers are at hand!
