National Geographic Kids Why? Over 1,111 Answers to Everything


"You have questions.  This book has answers - over a thousand of them - spread across hundreds of topics."   Divided into seven chapters, these answers cover your questions about Why Me, Why on Earth, Why in the Sky, Why, Where, When, Why-Fi, Wild Whys and The Whys of Our Lives.

This is a mashup of  information, weird-but-true facts, mythbusters, and some special people who have made a big difference in their fields.

Beginning with you, the questions range from "Why do I look the way I look?" to "How much of my body's energy does my brain use?"   Maybe if we used more than 10% of our brains, we'd know the answer to the question, "What lies at the very center of the galaxy?" or "How fast can our spaceships travel?"

Custom-made for curious minds, the information is delivered in short, easily consumed blocks of text surrounded by bright, colorful backgrounds.

Why do animals play?  Why did people become knights?  .......keep turning those pages and you'll have the answer to some really great questions.
