Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inquiry-based learning I've used this book in a kindergarten classroom to encourage critical thinking and inquiry-based learning. It's great in establishing ways for students to wonder about the things around themselves and in their world to gain more knowledge. This book has opened the doors for many of my students to question their surroundings and has encouraged very rich dialogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! What a fantastic book!! Would be a great gift too. I love the idea behind this great book, teaching yourself and your kid it's Ok not to know, and it's Ok to say I don't know, and I love the beautiful paintings. I actually got two copies, one for myself and one as a gift.
