  • comment

Time Home Entertainment sent me a copy of The Big Book of How. The TIME For Kids book features 192 pages, 501 facts, zillions of photographs and illustrations, 22 how to activities, and answers to many questions. The TIME for Kids Big Book of How is available now for a list price of $17.95 (Amazon price: $12.21). It is intended for kids, ages 9-12 (dads and moms should find the book interesting too). Bottom line: kids and parents will like this hardcover book. It’s an interesting coffee table book for families and is a great travel book (car, airplane, bus, train, boat, spaceship).
