When Oma arrives to stay with Jake, Lizzie, and their parents, they want to make her visit extra special — so off the family goes to Jake’s birthday party, the library, the beach, and many other places! These familiar childhood excursions prompt many questions from Jake and Lizzie. How do candles stay on fire? How do librarians remember where all the books go? How does the sand get so hot? Curious kids everywhere want to know — and no adult has all the answers. 

In the same style as the highly successful Why?, How? provides kid-friendly explanations for nearly one hundred everyday mysteries. Bright, playful illustrations from Scot Ritchie complement the clear text and set the scenes for the common questions that kids ask. A scrapbook-style page at the end of each chapter offers additional information in snapshots and captions. How? combines the best qualities of non-fiction and picture books to delight young readers again and again. 


CATHERINE RIPLEY is a former editor of Chickadee magazine as well as the author of several acclaimed children’s books. She lives in Fernie, British Columbia.

SCOT RITCHIE is an award-winning author/illustrator of more than 50 children's books. His books are translated into Chinese, Arabic, Korean and Russian. He travels the world and Scot likes to think this shows up in his work, giving it a universal appeal.
