Big Questions from Little People and Simple Answers from Great Minds

Hope that you all have had a beautiful, ThankFULL weekend!  I’ve been brimming over with ideas and topics about which to write, so get ready.

Let me begin the week with the most divine feel-good book that recently came into my life: Questions from Little People and Simple Answers from Great Minds. In this book, Gemma Elwin Harris asked thousands of primary school children between the ages of four and twelve to send her their questions and then invited some of today’s most prominent scientists, philosophers, and writers to answer them. Isn’t that so clever? This book is not only charming but also quite informative!  Here are some of my favorites:

Alain de Botton explores why we have dreams

Particle physicist and cosmologist Lawrence Krauss explains why we’re all made of stardust

Neuroscientist David Eagleman explains why we can’t tickle ourselves

And this is one of my favorites:

If you don’t already feel warm and fuzzing after reading this book, an added  Silver Lining is that a percentage of the sale of the book will be donated to Save the Children.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we are!
