Why does Swiss Cheese have Holes?

My nephew got a book at Christmas that I had to go out and buy for my class! It's Time for Kids Big Book of Why.
My nephew's favorite fact is why do we pass gas?
Ha! 
The facts are listed in paragraphs and while with it being nonfiction it can be a little tough for first graders my kids have started pairing up and helping each other. It's been a great motivator to get work done so that you can be the first one with the new book! It's only in hardcover, a little pricey, but it won't go out of style!

  3. I bought this for one of my daughters last Christmas (she was in grade 2). She LOVED it - and still does. She still walks around quoting the book - it's too funny! And did you know that water isn't wet??? She does. ;)
