A zasto? Planeta Zemlja - Keti Volard - (Why? - Planet Earth)


Here you will find answers to the funniest questions from around the world.
Find out about: quicksand, chameleons, butterfly wings and the pressure inside of rubber balls. The sequel to a highly popular book "Why?" reveals the 125 secrets of the world that we know well, or at least we think we do. There are questions about the Earth - how volcanoes and oceans work and do not overflow land. There are questions about animals - from camel humps to cat purring. Questions about people have not been left out - why do some people sleepwalk, why bruises are black and blue. There is also a section titled "Factory Tour", how numerous things are made: mummies, chewing gum, microwave ovens, etc.

NOTE TO PARENTS: No one can memorise all scientific facts, but "Why? Planet Earth", as well as the first book - "Why?"- will help you find answers to the funniest questions. Next time when your child asks why our stomachs rumble or how airplanes fly - refer to this book and give your child the answer.
