TIME For Kids The NEW BIG Book of Why Crazy, Cool & Outrageous answers the questions that kids commonly ask and adults can rarely answer. Why are our eyes different colors? Why do we put candles on a birthday cake? Why do we high five our friends? Why do elephants have big ears?

Packed with hundreds of new brain busting questions with easy to understand answers that made the first Big Book of Why a best seller. The book is divided by subject area - humans, animals, environment/nature, technology and space - and written in an upbeat manner, each answer is accompanied by either a photo or an illustration to show the reasons why.

TIME For Kids The NEW BIG Book of Why Crazy, Cool & Outrageous is a must-have book to satisfy the most curious of kids. Kids will be desperate to share what they've learned with their parents, teachers, and friends...and anyone else who will listen!

By Marie-Louise Gay

In the first new Stella book in four years — in a series that has sold two million copies in ten languages — Stella introduces little brother Sam to the pleasures of reading. Sam is as busy and worried as ever, and Stella almost always has her nose in a book these days, but she finds time to help him out, while sharing her new pastime with contagious enthusiasm.

Sam has gathered a wagonload of branches to build a doghouse for Fred, and he wonders if the book Stella is reading tells you how to make one. It doesn't (although it is very funny), but Stella is more than willing to give Sam a hand. As soon as the doghouse is built though, Sam worries that a wolf might come along and blow it down. Stella breezily banishes his fears, suggesting a picnic at Lily Pond. Stella cools her feet in the water, reading a story, while Sam tries to catch a frog. Are there frogs in Stella's book, he wonders. No, Stella tells him, but there is a toad wearing a velvet jacket…

With her characteristically light touch, Marie-Louise Gay imparts the pleasures and importance of reading to her young audience, whether it be humor, fiction, nonfiction or poetry. Her detailed, beautifully rendered and often-amusing watercolor illustrations (spot the tiny bunny reading a book!) show yet again that Marie-Louise Gay is one of the very best artists creating picture books today.

Hardcover storybook, contains 32 pages.

By Sandra Boynton

Hang on to yer hat, Cowboy.

Yeeeee-hah! Boynton goes Country! With three Gold Record albums and a Grammy nomination to her credit, Boynton now brings you FROG TROUBLE, a terrific CD and illustrated songbook of her new and wildly original Country songs. And they’re sung by a truly amazing roster of Country Music’s biggest and brightest stars: Here’s Brad Paisley with Copycat, Dwight Yoakam singing I’ve Got a Dog, Alison Krauss on End of a Summer Storm, Ben Folds rocking Broken Piano, Darius Rucker with Beautiful Baby. The lonesome-cowboy title track is performed by the low-voiced moody rocker Mark Lanegan (yes, of Queens of the Stone Age.) Add Josh Turner, Fountains of Wayne, Ryan Adams, Linda Eder, and quickly rising Country star Kacey Musgraves—all accompanied by Nashville’s finest instrumentalists, and WHOA. You’ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.

By Jeffrey Brown

This incredible, original story captures all of the humour, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school — all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away . . .

Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy — a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now.

This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too — like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

Hardcover illustrated novel containing 160 pages.

By B.J. Novak

You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . . BLORK. Or BLUURF. Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY. Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)

This is a 1000 piece building set of distinctive Kapla natural marine pine tone wooden planks packaged in a special wood box with wheels for easy storage! Includes instruction manual for inspiration and entertainment. This is the set you want for big building projects!

One thousand planks will give you plenty of versatility in the things you can build. Includes the booklet of building techniques with 40 illustrations and photographs. Kapla Construction Blocks are made for people all over the world, so there are no words. Pictures tell the whole story!

Kapla’s long and thin planks are based on the progressions of the uneven numbers 1:3:5. Three thicknesses for one width and five widths for one length. This ratio between bricks and stones and beams and planks now opens a whole new way of building. With these identical planks the builder can construct with the precision of artwork and the stability of stones. The use of identical unfixed pieces develops the child’s aptitude for organizing elements in a 3-dimensional space and allows them to discover and sharpen their manual ability in relation to objects. Kapla helps the child to understand the fundamental issues of geometry, physics and technology. It also introduces them to the world of art, and to the universe of shapes and volumes, while developing concentration and a feeling of balance.

Box features wheels on the bottom for easy movement.

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Strandbeast, young innovators start by constructing each half of the base and attaching a motor to both sides. Once the base system and the eight legs are in place, it’s time to bring the strandbeast to life by wiring the brain to the LED module, distance sensors, and motors using snap connectors, and then attaching the brain to the body. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright blue leg pieces that illustrate this complex robot’s graceful, smooth-walking stride.

To program the robotic strandbeast, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous mode that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Built product measures approximately 12.5” long, 14” wide, and 10” tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).

This multiple award-winning kit allows you to use everyday material to foster scientific understanding, build a spinning motor, a clicking telegraph, a working radio and a light flashing generator! Directions are clear, step-by-step and highly VISUAL. Most materials are included. Incredible illustrations present central scientific concepts, allowing children to learn the "why" as well as the "how", taking how-it-works to a whole new level of clarity. The use of everyday materials in the projects contributes to the understanding of how things work.

Although Inventions is designed for 8 year olds and up, this title has had an extraordinary history and following. It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics. It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science. It has been used similarly at other institutions including Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin. We heard rumors, that at one point, a number of physicists at Berkeley were spinning the hand made motors from Inventions on their desks, competing for the bragging rights as to whose was spinning the fastest!

Requires some common household items (not included).

Requires 1 D battery (NOT INCLUDED).
