by Gemma Elwin HarrisKids ages 4-12 ask "great minds" questions. Some of it was only skim-worthy, but some of it was adorable/interesting/heartbreaking.
* Can a bee sting another bee?
* Why are the grown-ups in charge?
* Why is space so sparkly?
* What would I look like if I didn't have a skeleton?
* Why do snails have shells but slugs don't?
Favorite answers - a lot of the science ones were interesting, and some of the others were touching, but Jeanette Winterson's is the only only I want to copy down.
"Q: How do you fall in love?
You don't fall in love like you fall in a hole.You fall like falling through space.It's like you jump off your own private planet to visit someone else's planet.And when you get there it all looks different: the flowers, the animals, the colours people wear.It is a big surprise falling in love because you thought you had everything just right on your own planet, and that was true, in a way, but then somebody signalled to you across space and the only way you could visit was to take a giant jump... And you can bring your friends to visit.And read your favorite stories to each other.And the falling was really the big jump that you had to make to be with someone you don't want to be without.That's it.
PS You have to be brave."
