...when I was given this title to review, my heart did skip a few beats! My little humans are constantly asking questions. My go to place is usually Google, however, with this little beauty now in my hands, I simply hand the book over to the kids and have them check the answer for themselves!

13½ Incredible Things You Need To Know About Everything is an intriguing and captivating book for the child that likes to ask questions about science, technology and history.

Leanne Barrett, Kids' Book Review

Filled with over 1,000 facts it really is a lovely book to add to your collection. I find DK books are also a great way of engaging reluctant readers as they can access information about real life situations and events in snapshots alongside illustrations and photography.
