How do elephants communicate? How can you make your house greener? How does an iceburg form? How do they clean up after an oil spill? How is chocolate made?

These are just a few of the questions your kids will answer when they read the Time for Kids Big Book of How! Not only will they read, they will experiment! The book contains over 500 facts kids want to know, plus easy to read, step-by-step instructions on how to find the answers through experimentation! One of the best things about this book is the rich color photographs and special attention to detail that is present on each page.

My children ages 6, 7 and 9 have been seriously entertained by this book. It has been in our house for a little under a week and all three of my children have read, experimented, and thoroughly enjoyed it! These are the things theyfve done so far:

¡My 7-year-old read the and created his own Rainforest (pg.94), which was an excellent science experiement teaching concepts of water vapor, the water cycle, and plant life in the rain forest.
¡My 9-year-old read gHow is Ice Cream Made?h (pg 134) then involved both of her brothers in gHow to Make Ice Creamh (pg 138). Without any help, all three kids made and ate Vanilla Ice Cream with a few ingredients in a Ziplock Bag!
¡How to Make Blubber (pg 24) was an immediate interest of my 7-year-old and is younger brother. This was a messy but interesting experiment that neither of them needed any help putting together.
¡How to make a Baking Soda Boat (pg 104) was the experiment that occurred in our kitchen sink one morning. Whether they know it or not (they know!) this is Sir Issac Newtonfs Third Law of Motion!

I know that this is a book out of the norm for this blog, but every once in awhile a book comes along for review that I just have to read! With a curious six year old in the house, my ears are constantly being flooded with questions on who, what, when, where, how and why. When I simply don't know, it frustrates my child to no end. So when reading this book, I marked a bunch of the pages for those questions that I know are on the horizon.

One of the best things about this book is the rich in color photographs and special attention to detail that is present on each page. For instance, my child wanted to make a paper airplane. Now it has been years since I have made a paper airplane and I couldn't even remember how. I looked in the index and sure enough it had it listed. I turned to the correct page and it gave me step by step instructions to make one. I must say, it helped tremendously and my airplane actually flew through the air! Score one for Mom and TIME For Kids!

Then with all of the news coverage of the recent NASA launch, my child had to keep asking how that rocket made it in the air. I grabbed my copy of this book and looked it up again. Sure enough, there was a page on how to launch a rocket! We looked at the explanations and diagrams and figured out how and why a rocket launches. Now, we didn't try this out because I didn't have the time that day, but I see a future Science Fair Project!

This book was amazing and my child can't stop looking through it. If you are a regular reader of TIME books, or if you are just wanting a great way to explain those curious questions your child likes to ask, then you need to get this book. Everything is discussed with a child's understanding in mind and explained easily for them to understand. Now if you will excuse me, we are going to go and test out the theory on what makes Popcorn Pop and enjoy our treats!

I always pick these books up when they come out for my nephew which is a great thing when driving in the car for long stretches. I gave him this new installment the other day. Not only does he tear through it on his own, he actually takes them to school to share with his friends (apparently these books are a more elaborate version of a magazine he gets at school). I'm thrilled to see these little gems shining brightly while surrounded by newer technology that takes kids away from actually holding a book. These books offer an experience that can't be matched by modern technology and I'm thrilled to be the favorite uncle for always bringing the latest edition to him.

I'm always reading reviews but never leaving any but this book was a hit with my family from the moment I opened the package so I had to come and write a review. It's broken up into chapters (animals,transportation,ect..) so you know what you will be learning about in that chapter instead of all mixed together like some books we have purchased. I have two boys (7 and 8) and a daughter that is 13. They have started the crystal project and my son took the book to school today to show his class how elephants communicate. We as a family will sit in the livingroom while my daughter holds the book someone will pick a number that will be the chapter we review and then someone else will pick another number and that will be the subject we read about that night. LOTS of GREAT information in the book and keeps kids attention! Can't say enough about how great this book is. 100% worth the money
