What would happen?

It’s a fascinating question isn’t it? People as a group have lots of questions that we ask every day. Questions are things we ask from almost the time we can talk as a small child and something we still do even when we get older. Well if you are a parent you probably have a kid who has lots of questions that you either don’t have the answer to or simply don’t have time to answer all of. Well now to help you out is this new book from National Geographic Kids. 

What Would Happen? Serious answers to silly questions is written By Crispin Boyer and published by National Geographic. It answers the interesting questions like: What if you had wings like a bird? What if we could speak to dolphins? What if the sun disappeared? What if you were related to royalty?

This books tells kids that while everyone wants to be a super hero, if you really got bitten by a spider, got hit by cosmic rays or lightning it wouldn’t really make you have super powers. In fact it could be quite harmful. 

The book answers all of these questions and more in a fun and easy to understand way. Talking about what might happen, and if it really could happen or not. 

I loved the fun answers that also taught what really could happen. It was fun and easy to read. 

The book itself has over 160 full color pages of information and pictures and is a good size for children to carry around. This book was written for ages 8-12, but I think it would work fine for a read-aloud with kids as young as six. Retail price of What Would Happen? is $14.99.

On a side note to anyone who believes in a young earth and is raising their children with this belief. National Geographic is a secular organization and so the historical science questions are answered with numbers into the millions of years.
