children gaze at a face-shaped cloud. Aiden asks if it is real: "I sense
it really sees me. Who knows what it can do! Maybe it has magic powers
that make the sky so blue!" To answer, we introduce our favorite
feathered-dinosaur, the Skeptisaurus, who guides the children to use their
critical thinking skills when determining myth from fact. He takes the kids on
an amazing journey through legends of old times, from witches to oracles,
explaining how we evolved to see things that aren't always there. But when
those myths vanish, they see that real scientific discovery is just as
exciting, if not more. With his help, the kids learn that "real answers
may not be magic, but they are always magical." This book raised over
$11,000 in pre-orders on Kickstarter.
Annabelle and Aiden are 2 kids who lern that discovering the true answer is the best way to go. Yes it may take time to come up with the answer but it is much better then just making up a nswer or reason to lifes little questions.
This is a very cute and short story. It is written in rhyme. The story goes very quick. The pictures on the page will greatly slow your reading time down. There is so much going on on these pages. They are by no means over done or confusing they just really catch your eye.
There is also kind of a sub story going on on a lot of the pages. It is actually telling facts or tidbits to the pictures. Like the page where they are talking about birds flying south. It quickly explains how the Stork got its connection to births.
This is a very nice book. I even learned a few things. The pictures like I said are vibrant, busy, and very well drawn. I read this to my Grand Kids who are 2 and 4 and they really liked the pictures and the story as well.
