In Emilee’s opinion:

Tell me how was a fun book to read with my seven year old. This book consisted of four subject areas including the human body, daily life, culture, and animals and nature. It also included stickers to place around the book. The illustrations were fun and eye catching. The questions were perfect especially when you are around children all the time who ask 100’s of questions. This book was interactive and educational. I will definitely bring this book on my next family vacation. It is the perfect book to pass time and be educated at the same time. My favorite question was, “How do flies walk on the celing? The answer was, “It’s magic! At the end of their feet they have hairy little booties with sticky soles that act like suction cups on the ceiling.” Overall, I was impressed with the amount of questions and simple answers found in this book.

In Emilee’s opinion:

Tell me how many was another fun book to read to my children. It covered five subject areas including animals, the human body, nature, civilizations and the world. It also included stickers. I loved the questions and the responses were simple. My favorite question was, “How many hours does a sloth sleep.” Now I thought they slept all day but the answer surprised me. “This is an animal that really deserves its name because it sleeps 16 hours a day when it lives in a zoo. In the wild, where life is more exciting, it spends 9 or 10 hours sleeping in the trees.” Another question I was surprised by was, “How many teeth does a snail have? Depending on the species, a snail may have up to 25,000 teeth.” What? That is crazy. This book will educate not only your children but adults too. It was a great book to read and I definitely recommend it to anyone going on a long car ride. It is also a great book to read for any summer book challenges.
