5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful spark to the imagination Aug. 19 2009
"Q is for Question" is a beautifully illustrated book, sure to broaden your children's vocabularies and spark their imaginations. The author (who I suspect is the little girl in the gorgeous pictures) has given us a wonderful tool to have discussion with our children we might not otherwise have had. Thank you, Tiffany!

My mother bought this book for my 7 year old for Christmas. When we sat down and read it together, my daughter's reaction was hilarious! I have never read a book to her which gave her such "pause". On many pages she grew wide eyed like her brain might explode from such big ideas! It made her think in ways she has never thought before! The book has lead to many conversations between her and I. I also see that as she grows up and comes back to the book, her answers to the questions may change and her interpretation of the questions will become different and deeper. I highly recommend this book to any parent or grandparent who wants to give their loved one the gift of BIG IDEAS and a real BRAIN STRETCH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you think March 15 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Makes you wonder why all books don't make you think this deeply.
It's fun to look at with children and watch them discover their meta-cognition at work.
It also makes you, as a parent, think about the world you're raising your child in.

Good Stuff!
