Review:Big Questions from Little People {The Children's Bookshelf}

Last week I received an interesting book: Big Questions from Little People. The book gathers over 100 real questions from primary school children and puts them to some knowledgeable experts. Alain de Botton explores 'How are dreams made?' Heston Blumenthal answers 'Why do we cook food?',Naom Chomsky answers 'Why animals can't talk like us?', Richard Dawkins answers 'Are we all related?' Defne (almost 6 years old) is at that age where she has started asking some challenging questions. We perused the book over the weekend and she was most interested about how we dream, why is blood red and how electricity is made. A great addition to a primary school aged child's library, I highly recommend it.
