Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stop cracking your knuckles or you'll get arthritis. Don't cross your eyes or they'll stay stuck like that. With entertaining, kid-friendly insights on every page accompanied by wacky illustrations, Don't Touch That Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You examines the truth and/or falsity behind parental do's and don'ts. When explanations aren't so cut-and-dried, kids are encouraged to decide for themselves. Here's a chance to know once and for all if lightning can strike the same place twice, if eating fried foods can cause acne, if an elephant never forgets, plus many more.

Synopsis:

Don't cross your eyes or they'll get stuck like that! This look at the truth (or falsity) behind the commonest things that adults tell kids is filled with humorous insights and wacky illustrations.
