What is the closest equivalent to the 1960's and 1990's series of books "...Tell Me Why"?

They were aimed at young kids who are a constant source of Why questions.

My wife kept hers from the 60's and they are a bit...outdated.
Example: There is an entry on ESP that says preliminary studies shows that ESP exists.
Also, there is no entry on what happens when we die.

I was looking to get the 90's revised version, but it was too illustrated for my taste.
The online Why resources pages are ok, but I want something to hold in my hand while my kid tries to find the question in the Table of Contents.

Thank you as always ahead of time.

To be clear, there are books of The Straight Dope; it isn't just a website.
