The summer slide. It happens! The moment school lets out, my son tosses his school papers and picks up his video game remote for what HE thinks will be a totally, care-free summer.
Not so fast, mister.
With school out, it's easy for children to lose focus on their studies. Suddenly, picking up a great book to read seems more like work and less like play. That is why I am constantly searching for fun book titles that will provoke thought, inspire new ideas and keep Kaden turning the pages.
Hello, TIME FOR KIDS Big Book of Where.
“Big Book of Where was the natural fit for the next title in the highly successful TIME For Kids ‘Big Book’ series,” said Bob Der, Editorial Director, TIME For Kids. “This book takes children on a worldwide expedition, which is not only educational, but captivating and fun.”
Have you ever wondered where electricity comes from? Or where you can find the most poisonous snake? This 192-page book, for kids 8 to 12 years old, has the answers to these questions and many more kids may never have thought to ask.We were excited to see this book on the shelf at a local bookstore.
In 10 chapters, which include The Oceans and Space, among others, readers will travel away from the comforts of home and jump into the seven continents, take a dive deep under the sea and venture out into the solar system. Along the way, they’ll discover some surprising facts about different customs, sports, history, and animals from around the world.
Colorful, easy-to-read maps, spectacular, eye-popping photos and clear, engaging diagrams make the book come to life and help answer questions such as:
- Where is the tallest mountain?
- Where did the Olympics begin?
- Where is the Petrified Forest?
- Where are diamonds found?
- Where was the hamburger invented?
- Where does spam go after you delete it?
- And much more!
Kaden said he liked the book because of all the pictures. It helps to have a visual to go along with the words. He also said it was an easy read. The words were not difficult and the information was easy to understand. One important note from Kaden is that the TIME For Kids’ Big Book of Where has a great layout. You don't have to read page by page. You can skip all over to subjects you like. He said it also makes a great reference book.
TIME For Kids’ Big Book of Where is the perfect addition to every family’s bookshelf. It's on sale today and is available at www.timeforkids.com/bigbookofwhere and retailers nationwide.
