How Do I Wonder?

Gianna Davy

Through lyrical text and vivid images, How Do I Wonder? invites young readers to open the door to their miraculous minds, exploring the wacky and wonderful 'What-ifs' and 'Whys' of the world around--and within--them.

From the creators of No One Owns the Colors comes a thoughtful, inspiring, and fun exploration of the splendor of childhood wonder and the endless potential of curiosity. Author Davy employs rhyming couplets to craft a book filled with questions meant to be pondered but not necessarily answered.

The adventure begins with a bored, lethargic child who asks his stuffed dinosaur a single question. This simple act sets him on a path to "a place you can go/To question and daydream and let your brain grow." Right there, in the realm of their own imaginative minds, readers find a springboard to leap into the unknown and the unknowable.

Do snails view turtles as slow?

When will I be considered old? And how young is young?

Why don't bunnies roar? Why is water wet?

In this sanctuary of daydreams and creativity, we each view the world through our unique lens. With limitless potential answers, every reader will respond differently to the questions posed. So, go ahead, let your mind play!
