WHY? A Book of Reasons

Email this review


A beginning science book done in a question and answer form with accompanying pictures ties in with the sound factual approach of Things That Spin and Numbers Old and New but the material is handled differently. There is no central theme. This takes the kinds of questions continually asked by children in 2nd-3rd-4th grades and answers them, so that each topic is complete in itself, within the limitations of the age level and scope. It is a difficult book to evaluate; I'd suggest that it be given to a child with an inquiring mind and acquisitive instinct for collecting unrelated facts.
