A Fun Book For Boys

You might be interested in a new e-book by Stuart Fish called

"Answers to 350 Quirky Questions that your kids will ask you one day".

I could see this book being of value in the classroom, in homeschool settings, or as something fun for anyone who enjoys trivia.

Here are just a few examples:

Q: When do I grow fastest?
A: In the springtime, just like plants and trees.

Q: Why are babies’ legs so floppy when they are born?
A: Babies are born without kneecaps. Well, not quite true – Babies’
kneecaps are made of cartilage, which is softer and only grow into
bone at about 3 years old.

Q: How long can an olive tree live for
A: Up to 1500 years

Q: What are the five continents?
A: They are : The Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

The book is broken down as follows:

Quirky Questions about:
My Body pg 3
Animals and Insects pg 11
Vehicles and Transport pg 35
The Universe pg 37
Earth, Nature and the Environment pg 39
At Home and at School pg 44

It’s clear that “Answers to 350 Quirky Questions” will be of interest to “kids” of any age.

Went to the link, filled in my name and email for the free sample, and it gave me a "Page Not Found" error.

Last time that happened to me, I started getting hundreds of spam a day, and had to abandon that email account.

Hummm Not sure why that happened. I've been in direct contact with the author, and wouldn't have suggested his book if there were a problem. If you'd like to email me directly at, I'll see what I can do.
