I Wonder

I Wonder Review

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.

    Kenard Pak’s beautiful illustrations can’t save this book from a meandering text that doesn’t sink in. It’s unfortunate this came out so close to Barnett’s Just Because, which shares some to...

    This one was a 3.5 for me, and I was pleasantly surprised that many of the things author K. A. Holt wonders about are similar to my own ponderings, now and as a youngster. There are several big questi...

    This book reminds me of something I heard in early recovery, as well as when getting my masters in adult education. The only stupid question is the one you're afraid of asking. This is a perfect book ...
