6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Prather TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 5, 2011
Format: Hardcover
That's How! invites readers to use their imaginations as they follow two children as they make up their own explanations about how things work. From an airplane that appears to be held together entirely by chickens, to a steamroller that operates from a bird tickling two bears, this book is sure to bring about much laughter and speculation from young picture book readers. The text is minimal, with each two page spread consisting only of the young girl asking how something works, and the boy answering "Hmm, let me think..." The next two page spread shows his explanation with the exclamation "That's How", and the girl saying "Wow".

While by no means a serious exploration of how things work, this book is bound to encourage young readers to make up their own whimsical explanations. The illustrations are large, colorful and fun. Perhaps my favorite is the digger; a rabbit holding a very large snake opening his mouth ready to take a big bite out of the dirt. A big recommend for any young reader who has ever asked "how does that work?" Who knew that trains ran on monkey power?

We are a homeschooling family and read a LOT of books. After we had checked this out of the library for the 100th time I finally bought our own copy. All my kids love it and they are 7, 5 and 2. I never write reviews but when I came on to buy it and saw there were only 3 reviews I could not believe it.

...for the inquisitive young mind. This book and "San Francisco" are two all-time favorites of both illustration and storytelling. A+

I have bought all of Christoph's books numerous times for children as gifts and all I can say is they are a universal hit with kids and parents alike. They are clever, fun to read, and beautifully illustrated. I'm not an expert on children's books but I've had kids I've given these books to come up to me (one, about a year later) and say that I gave them their favorite book. I'm surprised there aren't more reviews of these as well, because they are an instant hit. The parents have told me their children are constantly asking to have these books read to them. They are also a great way to give a child an original present that others won't get them -- these books are classics but not the predictable choice like goodnight moon or others that everyone buys for children.
