4.0 out of 5 stars My kid loves this book. 15 Mar 2012
By Josh W
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My 5 year old kid loves being read this book, and it always fascinates him even if we've recently read it. It's a book that you can regularly return to the re-learn new facts. It's got good drawings and explanations and is full of amazing and fun facts. I'd highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars For when you don't know the answer 22 Dec 2011
By A. Marczak TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As far as kids are concerned, parents know the answer to everything, it's just a question of whether that parent "has time to explain the answer".

This book contains plenty of question which a young child is bound to ask, and there are good answers to all of them.

It's difficult to pitch educational books to a particular age or gender, but this is definitely aimed at the infant end of primary school.

It's not exactly thorough, but it will capture imagination better than Wikipedia.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to keep a five year old occupied 25 Oct 2010
By sb
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The book has 50 questions that are answered in a simple, entertaining way using small pieces of text (so as to be more appealing to younger readers I suspect) and lots of colourful pictures.

I've found that the book's answers sometimes need to be further explained by myself if / when my daughter doesn't feel she has had the "how" question fully answered by the book - is that a reflection on the (incessantly) inquisitive nature of five year olds or the simplicity of the book?

Overall, quite good and recommended for a young child with an interest in learning to have on their bookshelf, but not as good as a children's encyclopedia type book as the answers given within do not always fully explain the question. Four out of five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff 26 Sep 2010
By Gregory Shanley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What a highly intentertaining book for young people.

Those of us of a certain age will remember an ITV show called How,full of interesting facts and although this book isn't related to that show,it does have all the same sort of interesting facts and figures.

There are also cheery,funny pictures to go along with all the data provided,there are also pop ups which will clearly delight a youngster,working their way through this highly interesting book.

If you're looking for a stocking filler for a youngster,give this book a try,it will delight!

4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive book for children 15 July 2010
By Caterina VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The title of this book might suggest that the questions it answers are all along the lines of "how does this work/happen?". In fact it also answers "how many...?", "how old...?" type questions. There are 50 questions in all, each with one page to iteslf with cartoon-style illustrations (some sample questions: how hot is the sun? how do bats see in the dark? how much does the biggest baby weigh? how deep is the ocean? how long does a tree live?). The answers to some of them seem to me to be more simplified than they needed to be. But the book isn't designed for adults so perhaps my view isn't really relevant: the more important point is that my 5 year old really likes the book and frequently pulls it off the shelf. For that reason, recommended. (Also, I imagine, suitable for an older child.)

4.0 out of 5 stars A little too short... 5 July 2010
By Mr. F. Ledwidge VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is fine as far as it goes. The trouble is that it is short. The explanations and answers to questions are good, witty and concise, without being patronising. However, there are really not enough for a child of early readng years to get stuck into. Those curious and inteligent children who do read this will enjoy it. They will want for more, which brings me back to the books only major drawback.......!

One other small complaint. I think the age range of 5 plus is a little optimistic. This is a little more suitable for slightly older children.

But it is well worth the purchase price, a good idea well executed.
