Do you have any idea why the Utah basketball team is called the Jazz or why a football is called a pig skin? How about why the Red Sox field is called Fenway Park? We didn't either until we spent all night flipping through the Big Book of Why. My husband who's a Red Sox fan had an especially fun time browsing through the questions and learning about little tidbits of sports trivia. It's a book I would recommend for older children- adults since it is factually based with real photographs as opposed to illustrations. My chidlren at ages 8 and 9 were still a little young to fully enjoy it. We, the parents had a lot of fun with flipping through. The photos are beautiful and one could spend an entire day asking why?

This book impressed me. When it arrived I was surprised at the sturdiness of the hard cover book. If your child is like the one I'm buying for then you will also be glad for this feature. Upon opening the book my eyes were met with many large color pictures on pretty much every page. It definitely reads like a magazine which in my opinion is nice for kids who may be daunted at tackling such a relatively big book. There is no need for marking places or cover to cover sequential reading of this book. That made me happy because I can imagine any child being glad to randomly flip the book open and read a few fun and fact filled pages at a time, any time, without getting bogged down. It is well written by the makers of sports illustrated kids magazine. You can tell the people who composed this work know their audience (children) as well as their subject matter (sports). I was unsure if it was what I was looking for when I ordered it but within minutes of opening it I knew I had hit on something good. I know my child will enjoy this and as a matter of fact I feel that we can easily enjoy this book together as a family. That is something well worth the price I paid for this book. I'm happy with this purchase of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED KIDS BIG BOOK OF WHY SPORTS EDITION. I plan on buying more from these authors soon.I would recommend it to anyone with a child who is interested in almost any sport.

I bought this book as gifts for two grandsons....ages 8 and 10. It was a hit in both households! Both boys are very interested in sports and this book gave them capsule comments and full colored illustrations of many sports ranging from hockey to baseball and in between. This book is a gentle way to nudge them into the great world of reading.....something they are tentatively considering right now!

I bought this as a Christmas gift along with the football "Big Book of Who" for a 10 year old in my family (who really enjoys sports). He actually took time out from opening more presents to start reading both books and quizzing us on what he was reading - I would say they were a hit! They were packaged well and arrived in perfect condition - no scratched up covers or bent corners. The information is put together in a way that young kids can read, comprehend, and enjoy it. I thought the prices were reasonable - maybe a bit high - but for the enjoyment he was getting out of these books - I would say it was money well spent!

This is a great gift for the kid who already has everything! Our nephew (age 8) is a stinker for getting gifts, every gift, from PlayStation to iPads to four wheelers….so when Christmas came around, we were stumped for his present. Found this book and he LOVED it! He isn't much for reading, but he loves to brag about his new facts that he read in his new book. Reports of him taking it to school and showing his friends who asked their parents for a book just like it….. KILLED IT THIS CHRISTMAS WITH THE GIFT! Yahoo!

My son is 7 years old and he loves this book. I read it most of the time to him, but he is able to read a lot of the words. He really enjoys hearing the answers to all the "Why" questions of sports and then sharing the information with his dad. Great book for the young and old sports lovers.
