100 Things You Should Know About…

Now that my son has started to read more and more on his own, he’s moving into the non-fiction book section since he’s asking more and more of the “Why?” and “Do you know…?” questions 😉

Browsing the bookstore for books on dinosaurs, volcanoes, food (???), the human body and a million other topics, I found this set of “100 Things You Should Know About” books!!!

First, we found 100 Things You Should Know About Dinosaurs. When he caught sight of the book cover, he grabbed it from me and flopped down on the floor to start flipping through the pages.

100-Things-You-Should-Know-About-DinosaursThe book is really interesting as they contained many colourful photographs, detailed illustrations and simple explanatory text with quite a bit of questions to engage the young reader.

Since he liked that book, I went around the bookstore looking for the other titles and found a whole lot more!

Unfortunately, they were all in Chinese LOL

Plus, they were almost all dated back to 2001. The newest one was 2004.

I found this interesting bumper book of science experiments instead!

With The Everything Kids’ Science Experiments Book, all you need to do is gather a few household items and you can recreate dozens of mind-blowing, kid-tested science experiments. High school science teacher Tom Robinson shows you how to expand your scientific horizons from biology, chemistry, physics, technology, and engineering—to outer space.

You’ll discover answers to questions like:
—Is it possible to blow up a balloon without actually blowing into it?
—What is inside coins?
—Can a magnet ever be “turned off”?
—Do toilets always flush in the same direction?

Yup, kids, you CAN try these at home 🙂
