Summary

Summary

Providing definitive answers for inquisitive minds, 101 Questions & Answers is the perfect resource to help satisfy young readers' questions about vehicles, weather, dinosaurs, their own bodies, and hundreds of other topics -- questions, in fact, that often leave adults stumped!

Imaginative Illustrations Explain Topics in the Physical and Natural Sciences

Filled with incredibly clear, colorful drawings and diagrams, each volume uses a fun question-and-answer format to explain 101 popular topics in the physical and natural sciences.

The imaginative illustrations and simple text let readers investigate the world like a scientist would, probing and peering into places normally unseen: inside elaborate machines, beneath the Earth's crust, into the inner workings of their own bodies, even back 100 million years ago to the age of the dinosaurs.

By showing clearly and creatively how the world around them works, 101 Questions & Answers sends young students on the exciting road of scientific inquiry and discovery.

Why is a blackboard black? What is a living cell? Why are liquids wet?
