In this profound and empathetic look at the questions children wonder about, Britta Teckentrup beautifully illustrates life’s mysteries.What will my life be like? Will I be happy? Will I ever be able to reach the stars? There are no answers to these questions, but in this eloquent picture book Britta Teckentrup lets children know that they are not alone in asking them and gives parents an opportunity to start a conversation with their children about the questions that come up in their lives. A young girl stands on a chair to see what it’s like to be tall. A boy stares towards the sky and wonders if birds enjoy flying. Friends argue, lovers embrace, the distant sun warms the earth, and people grow old. Using soft hues, bold outlines, and unusual textures, Teckentrup’s illustrations help evoke the feelings surrounding each question. As they flip through the pages children and their parents will find endless opportunities to think about life’s big questions and to have conversations that will be remembered for years.
“A handsome volume offering conversation starters, writing prompts, or thoughtful browsing pleasure.” –Kirkus
