My Opinion:
One word: Debatable.
This book ponders all the really big questions like, where do we come from and how do colors make you feel?
I did have an issue while reading the book, though more of a debate amongst myself as to what should be put forth. Content-wise, I mean. Here's why: Inside the book, when it asks where do we come from, it concludes we come from The Big Bang. That's all well, good and true, but what about the parents that want their children to believe we come from God. The scientific theory would have to go out then. So this is where I debated with myself as to which is right. Should we teach our kids that we come from God or The Big Bang?
If you answered the latter, in The Big Bang, then have your child read this book. If you answered God, I wouldn't bother. Then you may find yourself being asked even harder questions than what was answered in the book, and will be all alone with that question.
I liked the book, appreciated that it made me question myself. Though I don't believe it will have the same effect on a child who reads this.


3/5


Recommend? If you are not religious, yes.

  1. It sounds like such an interesting book, really. Years ago, I would have answered the question [and taught children likewise] that we came from "God" [I'm a former minister] -- nowadays, however, I would answer the question so differently, and I think both answers are too simplistic. We didn't come "from" the Big Bang [per se] but the Universe is here because of reasons we will never fully understand. I would leave a child with the mystery, rather than an answer that even we ourselves cannot ever fully describe, or know.

  2. This is a kids book? As if kids need to face any question harder than "What's for dinner?"

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
