TIME for Kids "Big Book of How: 501 Facts Kids Want to Know"

My daughter is in the full-fledged “Why” stage and it gets to the point at times (especially for my husband), where it gets a little overwhelming. I tend to add a bit of detail to my responses, often in an attempt to give her so much information to ponder on that it slows down the “Whys”, but also to help feed her growing curiosity. I am finding that the older she gets and the more information she learns, the harder it gets to answer all of her questions as she discovers and explores the world around her.
Last month TIME for Kids launched a new book entitled the “Big Book of How”, which is full of fascinating information and project ideas for hundreds of questions kids ask that we as caregivers don’t always have the answers to. How elephants communicate, how to build your own periscope, landfill and other do-it-yourself science experiments that will keep you kids learning, thinking and staying busy all summer long.
