Many of the questions children ask in the course of growing up can stump even the best educated adult: Why can't l tickle myself? Are we all related? Who named all the cities? Do aliens exist? What makes me me? Is it okay to eat a worm? Who invented chocolate? If the universe started from nothing, how did it become something? How do you fall in love? Who is God? How do chefs get ideas for recipes? Why are some people mean? This charming and informative collection has been compiled from schoolchildren's actual questions, which are answered by the world's greatest experts, including Mary Roach, Richard Dawkins, Philip Pullman, Bear Grylls, David Eagleman, Philippa Gregory, Noam Chomsky and Mario Batali. --Publisher description.… (mais)

Questions from children posed to some of the best minds of our age (and Miranda Hart) and answered in a way that, well, a child can understand.

Although I'm clearly not the target audience for this (the book is more for parents trying to explain to their inquisitive child why the sky is blue or if a cow would fly into space if it didn't fart for a year(!)), it is a reminder that sometimes you do need to think like a child to really capture the wonder in the world and the innocence of some of the questions is rather lovely. Skimmable at times but depending on the person answering the question, an enjoyable read. ( )

Children are no idiots, only slightly less experienced than us adults. This is why they sometimes seem to have no barriers to their thoughts, actions and questions. We do, because we take many things for granted.

This is why reading this book is not only educational for kids and adults alike, but therapeutic as well. Just reading through the index made me wonder how many things I think I know but never give a second thought about it.

The selection of experts is astounding and I really appreciate that their answers are never condescending, but plain, informative and even poetic.

My recommendation is to ponder every question for a while before reading what the expert has to say. Do you know the answer? Could you know the answer? What do you know about the subject? Then read along and marvel yourself ( )

This book is such a fun and witty book that takes out-of-the-box scientific questions from kids and get answers from scientists. Some questions include: Why can't I tickle myself? Can a bee sting another bee? etc. Fun for kids, parents and teachers to explore! ( )
