"So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall." Roald Dahl
"Big questions from little people..."
"Big questions from little people and simple answers from great minds" compiled by Gemma Elwin Harris

I suppose at some point in time all people will have to deal with kids.
I myself am afraid I’ll soon become an “aunt” for another one (I strongly suspect it's already on their way, but it would be rude to tell before I'm told...).
I’m one ambitious aunt: I tend to be the coolest from the all bunch of them. I guess it’s because I rather like kids – as long as after whole day off fun I can get home where there are none…

Enough about me for now, let's get to the book:

"Big questions" are composed of the crazily hard to answer questions kids ask and well thought answers from the specialists in their respected fields. I’ve read it as a part of my plan to become even cooler than I already am - I think I did, and also had tons of fun while at it.

I particularly enjoyed “Why do we have music?”, “How do cars work?” (first time I actually understood something in this matter), “Why can’t I tickle myself?”, “Why do wars happen?”, “Are we all related?”, “How did we learn to write?” “Who is God?” and last but not least “Did Alexander the great like frogs?”…

I recommend to all inquisitive children, inquisitive adults who like to laugh and don’t care about scientific gibber gabber language for insiders only, and also (of course): parents, will be parents, could be parents, aunts and uncles born and incorporated into their friends families. Have fun smile
