Why oh why don't snakes have legs?
Title: Why Not?
Author: Crispin Boyer
Publisher: National Geographic Kids
Why don’t snakes have legs? It’s all in the genes. Why don’t spiders get stuck in their own webs? Because they are master web walkers. Why didn’t food spoil before refrigerators? People used snow, cold streams, air tight jars and also dried meats and fruits to keep them from spoiling. Why can’t we remember everything we see and do? Because total recall isn’t in our brains job description. Why do we get sleepy at night? Our bodies follow a 24-hour schedule known as a circadian rhythm.
This big book has over 1,111 answers to a plethora of questions. Readers will find chapters on animals, our planet, the universe, history, technology, pop culture and our bodies. Little boxes with fun facts with captions such as Say What, Myth Mashed, QTips, Persons of Interest and Silly Question Serious Answer will have readers amused and engaged. Instead of the big book of why readers will find answers to why we can or can’t do certain things. The colorful design is host to fantastic National Geographic photos and even some cool illustrations. Parents and teachers will enjoy all of the hundreds of homework helpers too.
