VINE VOICEon 24 October 2009
Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I ordered this book from Vine as our 8 year old has hit that point in every child's life where everything becomes a question specifically, given our country's continued obsession with religion and teaching it in school at the expense of proper science, for the more philosophical questions regarding the origins of the universe, the meaning of life etc. I have to say that Dr. Law has done a fantastic job of keeping these and other, more scientific, ideological and philosphical questions such as "What does my brain do?", "Is time travel possible?", "Is it Ok to eat animals?" and "Will money make me happy?", to very concise, imaginative, funny and, often, partially open ended answers. At no point does he actually state, for example, that there are no gods or that there are no such thing as psychic powers, but the ability for the parent to take the book's answers and expand and help the child make up there own mind is thoughtfully presented. If I have a minor criticism, it is that the art style is very 50s/60s children's book with simple pictures and slightly muted colours. A more vivid printing and more imaginative art style, along with, perhaps, a cartoon guide, would have really made the book but, as it stands, it is still very highly recommended. A real delight.
