Review: The true test of a book at our house it how my children receive it. My oldest son, 7, took the book around with him every where for a good week reading aloud form its pages. We learned about holidays in different countries, what an adam’s apple is, and customs around the world. Then I founds him making paper boomerangs from instructions within and eventually he even cooked up some pudding pops all on his won. The Big Book of What kept him highly entertained with full page photos and how-to’s. I would recommend it for children ages 6-12 and give it a full five stars for making a reluctant reader one happy camper!
