Description

This exciting and fact-filled new series will give lively and informative answers to many of the What, How, Why and Which questions that young children ask about the world around them. Question Time: Mammals, for instance, asks a variety of questions such as "Why are whales whoppers?", "What do kangaroos keep in their pouches?", "How do polar bears keep warm?" and "Which mammals can fly?" plus many more. Carefully researched and created to fulfil early-learing needs, each book covers a popular subject that will stimulate children's curiosity. The topics are explored in great detail with engaging text, and supported by colourful and inviting illustrations which bring the mammals vividly to life. Further information is supplied alongside photographs, amazing facts appear with eye-catching cartoons, and a Now I Know feature reinforces the facts that have been learned. This focused approach will provide a solid basis of knowledge, as well as inspire and educate.show more
