Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—This contemplative title will inspire children to ponder some of the mysteries of nature (how do birds learn to sing? How do the leaves change color?). Featuring vivid, textual acrylic illustrations that almost beg to be touched and quietly lyrical text in verse, this one is a treat for budding young philosophers. --This text refers to the Board book edition.

From Booklist

Inspired by an Italian song, this brightly illustrated picture book asks a series of questions related to the natural world. The rhyming text, translated from the original German, is simple enough for sharing with preschoolers. A horizontal painting, showing the cross section of the ground with four stages of a young plant�s growth, illustrates the question �How do seeds know how to grow, to reach up from the earth below?� The artwork for �What makes fire burn red and gold and makes it much too hot to hold?� is more abstract, with flowing shapes in overlapping tones of white, yellow, orange, and black. Best known for the Rainbow Fish series, Pfister uses a less controlled approach here, applying acrylic paints by printing them on paper using thick cut-cardboard shapes as blocks. Interesting fractal-like effects add texture. An illustrator�s note explains the technique and encourages readers to try it. This visually appealing picture book asks open-ended questions and lets children ponder the answers. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
A wonderful offering from the creator of Rainbow Fish; Questions, Questions is a testament to the power of picture books to enchant and engage the minds of young readers. This is a fantastic opportunity for parents or teachers to interact with their children, as each two page spread presents a question. "What turns the rain on in the sky and brings the sun to make things dry?" is the question on one spread, and another asks "How do birds learn how to sing? What brings summer after spring?" This book is full of questions about simple things that have pretty complex answers. They will be sure to generate both discussion and imagination. The possibilities that may arise from the question "Do apple seeds dream happily of growing up to be a tree?" are just endless. The book ends with a rhyme reinforcing the fact that questions are indeed everywhere, and that there is just so much out there to know! A great lesson that it's never too early to start teaching.

The illustrations in this book are beautiful. The colors are bright, and the author's technique has given us images that have a very interesting texture, exhibiting a very unique mix of realism and the abstract. Each spread features one foiled element which naturally draws the eye, however your attention stays to examine the color variations and the different effects the artist was able to obtain through his stamping technique. Kids will enjoy them and parents will marvel at them, making this a great choice for the classroom and any preschoolers personal collection. Recommended.

This book has beautiful pictures & would be a great read aloud. As a teacher, I can see using it to start discussions or to teach children how to question.
