Description

Kids who love the intrigue of titles such as What Do You Do with an Idea? will be inspired to ask their own questions about the world around them. In this unusual text, young listeners and readers follow a group of diverse kids trying to make sense of the world as they see it. Questions such as What do clouds taste like?, Do my toys miss me when I'm gone?, and I wonder if cars and trucks speak the same language remind us of a child's unique point of view. Nothing is more powerful than seeing something for the first time, and these whimsical questions will encourage all readers to take a fresh look around them.
Exquisite artwork by rising star Kenard Pak follows the arc of a day, ending with a spread showing a group of children as different and varied as their questions.

Review quote

Pak's artwork is delicate and serious, echoing shapes and colors across a spread to forge connections. Pensive and muted: the quiet side of wondering. --Kirkus Reviews "A lovely mood and an affectionate ending affirmation send the book's cast, and its readers, off to joyful contemplation." --Publishers Weekly A sweet jumping-off point for more wondering.--Booklist
