Book Review: The Mysteries Series for 8-14 year-olds

Similarly, Anu Kumar travels through time and attempts to unravel the mysteries of history, also throwing in various historical theories that offer plausible explanations to various events. Needless to say, this is informative even for parents who are skeptical about whether the great war of Mahabharata really did happen!

The book on nature delves into the mysterious ways of nature by opening doors into the world of its inhabitants and fun facts about them. You can read about crocodiles swallowing stones to help digest food, or rabbits eating their own poop……….and many more such interesting facts narrated in a manner that not only provides the necessary information makes it an entertaining read.

While the book on science and nature can double up as a non-fiction read for younger kids, the book on history pre-supposes a basic knowledge and background of the historical facts.

Though similar to the “Tell me Why” series that we grew up reading, these books offer exhaustive explanations that are couched in language that is both engaging and enlightening, with catchy phrases and humourous titles. With these books, learning is sure to be fun. Besides, the books are truly an eye opener to us parents as we don’t have be clueless when our little one asks “Why does the koel sing?”!
