About the book


Children learn from everything they see, hear and do. Experience tells us that learning is most effective when it is also fun. The What’s What series of general knowledge textbooks aims to put this idea into practice. The books present a wealth of information and essential everyday skills through enjoyable lessons and exercises. The facts and ideas are drawn from practically every branch of knowledge and every walk of life. These books will lead children to explore, discover and learn more on their own by kindling their curiosity.

A remarkable feature of the series is the life skills and values section in each book. Adding perspective to knowledge in this manner is important while training young minds. Each skill and value is taught through a real-life situation and by guiding the learners on how to deal with the situation.

The beautiful design and attractive format of the books complement the rich informative content. By providing wide, varied and practical general knowledge, What’s What equips children to succeed in the age of tough competition.
