More than 100 colorful photos are paired with age-appropriate text featuring answers to questions like "How do chameleons change color?" "How do refrigerators stay cold?" "How do tornadoes form?" "How do submarines stay underwater?" "How does food get to the grocery store?" and "How does my body heal?"

Games and parent tips encourage interactivity and extend the experience of the book beyond its pages.



Review Quotes




"Esbaum's text is funny, educational, and exciting enough to keep children turning those pages until the very end. This book is flexible and diverse enough to be used across multiple genres, including science, social skills courses, math, horticulture, ecology, oceanography, meteorology, or simply as a vibrant independent reading tool." -- New York Journal of Books

"Readers will have fun looking through this book and will also enjoy the many subject areas covered... I found it hard to put the book down as each page contained another interesting question. The design is very appealing with colorful pictures that follow the text." -- School Library Connection
