More than 100 colorful photos are paired with age-appropriate text featuring answers to questions like "How do chameleons change color?" "How do refrigerators stay cold?" "How do tornadoes form?" "How do submarines stay underwater?" "How does food get to the grocery store?" and "How does my body heal?" This book helps parents share fascinating, accurate answers, and inspires kids to be curious, ask questions, and explore the world around them. Games and parent tips encourage interactivity and extend the experience of the book beyond its pages.
