First, I would like to apologize to Lisa who sent me this book awhile ago. This book has been been picked up many times by myself and by my family and friends who have young children who ask questions. But real life, such as it is, often gets in the way and the review for this book kept getting pushed back farther and farther. So thank you Lisa for being patient and for offering me this book for review.
The Handy Answer Book for Kids (and Parents) is one of the most handy books to have around. Many of my friends and family have young children, and this book has come in handy. The one thing I would say is that some of the answers were bit lengthy, and I would only use it for children over the age of 7 or so.
However, I personally had a blast finding out some of the information that is inside this book, such as how long a giant anteaters tongue is. This book will be a keeper on my shelves. Something that I can pull out whenever the questions of the universe plague me.
The nice thing about this book, is that the questions are arranged in chapters so I'm not flipping through looking for a specific question or topic. I can just flip to the correct chapter and BAM! Instnat question answering. Honestly, this book reminded me of a much bigger version of the Mickey Wonders Why! books, that I had as a child.
