Booklist - 08/01/2019 A book about questions? Sayre helps young children, who are always inquisitive, understand questions’ purpose, potential, and appropriateness. Digitally enhanced, patterned illustrations feature children with different skin tones, hair colors, and physical abilities in a variety of settings, from the classroom to the beach. In each locale, short text explains a facet of questioning, while the children provide examples through speech bubble questions and answers. The book begins with how questions originate, such as with a need to get information or from curiosity, and continues with how to ask them, particularly with words like who, when, and why. Educators will appreciate the section about asking the right questions at the right time. In this case, a school visit from a female president and the president getting a checkup in a doctor’s office highlight the appropriateness of questions like “How old are you?” in different settings. And comments and stories? They’re not questions! Sayre concludes with questions as catalysts to understanding the world around us, leaving readers wondering, why wasn’t this thought-provoking book written sooner? - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
