Big Questions from Little People: and Simple Answers from Great Minds - Gemma Elwin Harris
A hundred essential questions by children are answered by the world's greatest experts including Sir David Attenborough, Richard Dawkins, Philip Pullman, Derren Brown, A.C. Grayling, and Noam Chomsky.
Many of the questions children ask in the course of growing up can stump even the best educated adult: Why can't I 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?
Illuminating and essential, Big Questions from Little People is a timeless gift, a handbook for curious children and their perplexed parents. Amazon
