How Come was for many years used as a textbook in schools across the country. Kathy Wollard was chosen over Isaac Asimov to write the How Come Column for Newsday. Her writing took young readers to inside a leaf or a raindrop or the sleep habits of birds. Through Kathy Wollard’s words kids could feel the excitement of science…and so could I – what a great job.
The How Come column appeared in Newsday for over 2 decades and was in worldwide syndication. The Columns answered science questions sent in by kids from all over the globe.
