Another negative review said the information is shallow and gave this example: "Some question do not even have answers like this one, 'why some animals are big and some are smalls?' the answer 'life happens everywhere it can on this amazing planet. life comes in every size, shape and color' ? what kind of answer is that?" Well, I think is a very good answer for the audience the book is intended for. Why are some animals big and others small? Because there are all kinds of animals in the world, some big and some small. I think it's a perfectly valid answer. If your kid needs more information you can teach him about evolution for an hour if you want. You have to understand the purpose of this book is having a lot of questions and a lot of content. If they start going deeper into answers then that means less content. I rather have more questions with simple answers than a few questions with 3 pages of an answer.
Finally, another reviewer seems to be confusing this book for something else and tries to show the "inaccuracies" but only comes off as a trying to display his knowledge of things. We get it, you know how to use wikipedia, guess what? This is a book for "KIDS", if you want to show off how much you know why don't you review a PHD book on physics?
This is a great book with tons of content and my kid loves it. It's not perfect, but that's why you're there as a parent.
National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Why is very much successful in answering this big question of a small word why.
This book is of a big size with a hard cover. Paper material is of very good quality so that when a child turns the page rapidly they do not tear off.
The book is made for a child in real sense. The answers to each why is given in such an easy manner that a child can easily get the answers to his/her why. An newer to a why question can be given in two ways 1) theoretically 2) practically -
This book adopts the way of giving practical answers in a very simple manner without losing any important theoretical fact. I really miss this book as my childhood book of knowledge. This book gives all the answers in such a nice and simple way that it has become my 3 year old daughter's most favorite friend and guide.
Each why question and its answers is described with beautiful colorful pictures so that knowledge becomes accurate and practical in real sense.
Not only the answers are given, in some sections there are also some exercises where a child can apply his knowledge which he.she has gained from the previous topics.
My daughter and we really love National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Why and after finishing this one we will be interested in buying other books of National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book .
The nice thing about this book is that even if some of the concepts are too advanced, it's still a beautiful book and I think the pictures can give you a lot to talk about with your kids while reading it. I've learned some interesting facts from this book too - so it's been a lot of fun reading it together. Because the answers can be very simplistic at times, I could definitely see this book as a jumping off point to go looking for more information as my son gets older and asks more questions.
