Review:

“I wonder why," "how come," and "why does" are typical phrases children use to form questions. Children want straight-to-the-point answers in an understandable language when seeking information. Kingfisher is known for its comprehensive yet understandable format used for helping children obtain answers to their questions. Thirty-one questions are asked and answered in this book, which should satisfy inquisitive youngsters in search of information about time and seasons. An index lets young learners look up topics of interest without reading the book from cover to cover. The illustrations provide vivid pictures to aid in comprehending the text. The size of the book is also worth noting, as it is the perfect size for a young reader. However, in its paperback form, it may not withstand an abundance of handling. This book is a great resource as it relates to the Standards of Learning 2.7.” ―Children's Literature
