“The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
~ Albert Einstein
Just few months back I wrote a blog on movie “The Good Dinosaur”, which had generated lot of questions in my hyperactive and curious little child’s brain.
In that blog I mentioned about a book ” My Big Book of Questions and Answers”, which we referred to feed our brain with information.
Its a great refernce book to be kept for 6 + year old kids who show inclination towards Earth, Space, Science, Nature, Wings, Wheels and our existence on this planet. Although in Amazon reading level mentioned for this book is for 12 + years, I suggest to include it in your shelf as soon as the child starts reading.
This book is a collection of approximately 1000 questions which a young curious and open mind usually ask to his or her parent as soon as they develop speech and start exploring their surroundings.
Unfortunately I am not a very intelligent mother who has all the answers to satisfy my kid’s curiousity, so whenever I am not able to quench his inquisitiveness, this book comes to my rescue.
Above mentioned book is divided into five sections with fascinating informations presented as questions and answers format, accompanied by colourful and simple illustrations. This book tries to answer questions in few simple sentences avoiding the complexity of too many scientific terminologies.
I have observed that this book has always been a good conversation starter with my kid. Once he picks up the book he will start turning pages and will tend to get engaged with it atleast for 30 minutes.
This beautifully illustrated book introduces young readers to the wonders of the world around us. Its not only an interesting book for our kids but its a lovely book for us parents also. I wish I had this book when I was a kid.
So go ahead and stack it in your shelf to answer those intellegent questions asked by your child and have a glimpse of few pics taken from this book:

This Christmas vacation we watched few Animation movies and one of them was “The Good Dinosaurs”.
It’s a good family movie to watch with your little kid ( 6 + years) who has grown up enough to understand emotions. We watched this movie in parts to avoid straining our eyes.
Although it’s a fantasy tale where humans and dinosaurs are shown living in the same world side- by- side, this movie shows us the importance of being together in a family.
It encourages them to do hardships on their own to earn their mark in this society.
It inspires them to overcome their fears and learn something new, which is mostly true for us grown-ups also.
Watching this movie has helped my son to overcome his fear of falling while skating😊…..as I have got an example to encourage him to learn little more everyday and the process is still on…..
Apart from this kids will also learn about different kinds of dinosaurs and their survival techniques visually ( herbivores, carnivores, flying ones). As he will grow up little more we will watch it again and by then he will know what are the different types.
Many times earlier also we had discussions about dinosaurs, and after watching this movie he again became curious and asked me….
“Are there still more Dinosaurs living on earth?”,
“How the dinosaurs became extinct?
Since he was more curious to know about dinosaurs he picked up a book ” My Big Book of Questions & Answers” which we have in our library.
He opened it to look for more information about dinosaurs and I started googling 🤓, to master myself on this topic.
His questions have always enlightened me and it’s a treasure not to be lost in this fast paced world.
Would love to know about similar kids movie which makes the child curious to know more.
