Finally, a book for kids that is not afraid to ask the BIG questions.
The Little Book of Big Questions addresses a whole lot of questions kids often wonder about. Usually there is no simple answer. For each question, different theories and opinions are illustrated, with easy-to-grasp examples and comparisons.
How far away are the stars?
Stars are too far away to measure in miles or kilometers, so astronomers use light years.
A light year is the distance light travels in a year. One light year is nearly 10 million million km (or 6 million million miles) -- that's 10 with another 12 zeros behind it!
Should we transplant pig hearts or chimpanzee kidneys into humans?
At first I thought, "Yuk, no," and then I thought, "Hey, wait a minute. If I eat pigs, then why can't I have a pig heart? What's the difference?"
Within each section a variety of related questions are asked and answers are offered. The text is conversational in tone, making the reader feel part of a discussion. This book will answer some questions, but it will also inspire children to probe more deeply, explore further and find out even more answers.
