Book Review - TIME For Kids Book of Why - Amazing Sports and Science
About the Book
TIME for Kids The BIG Book of Why: Sports and Science answers the why, what, when, where, who and how questions that kids commonly ask, but adults can rarely answer. Why does a curve ball curve? Why does a Super Ball bounce so high? How can David Beckham make a soccer ball "bend"? Why can eating chocolate make people hyper?
Written in an upbeat manner, each answer is accompanied by either a photo or an illustration to show the reasons why. Of course, TIME For Kids goes beyond answering the question, and dips into the science or history to further explain the answer in an easy-to-follow, straightforward manner.
TIME For Kids The BIG Book of Why: Sports and Science is a must-have book to satisfy the most curious of kids.
My Take on the Book
This book was interesting and fun to read. I learned so much. Here are a few facts.
Charlotte Cooper was the first woman to win a gold medal in tennis at the 1900 Olympic Games . She was one of 22 women who competed in Paris, France that year.
A panel of sports specialists in 1908 determined that Abner Doubleday invented the game of baseball in Cooperstown, New York, in 1939. However he claimed did not invent the game.
For those of you who like to run, the fastest human is Usain Bolt, from Jamaica. He ran the 100 meter dash in 9. 58 seconds in 2009.
So many more facts and interesting information. I believe you and your child will enjoy sharing this book together.
