Children by nature are curious about the world and people around them. As they grow older their level of awareness increases and questions begin to pour from their inquiring minds. Their questions maybe motivated by what they hear and see in their surroundings, what they see on television or what they are trying to learn in school. In most cases the burden of answering these questions falls on the parents. Parents are busy people. Children want the answers right now. This guide will provide answers for many questions traditionally asked by children between the ages of eight and sixteen. This guide is published in E-Book format only and is intended to reside in your e-book reader so the information is easily accessed whether at home or on the road.
