Owlkids comes the 10th anniversary edition of Catherine Ripley's Why?: The Best Ever Question and Answer Book about Nature, Science and the World around You
For ages 3-8, this book provides simple answers and colorful illustrations to lots of questions kids commonly ask such as:
- What makes that toy glow in the dark?
- Why do my fingers get so wrinkled in the tub?
- Why does popcorn pop?
My only pet peeve? No sources are listed. Ahhhhhh!!!!!!
Random House Books for Young Readers is Rebecca Barnhouse's The Coming of the Dragon.
From the publisher, "Rebecca Barnhouse weaves Norse gods, blood feuds, and a terrifying dragon into this spectacular retelling of the end of the Old English poem Beowulf."
As an English Lit major, Beowulf was on many a course syllabi, so I have to admit this is intriguing. The book goes on sale tomorrow.
