Summary
Why Can't I Feel the Earth Spinning? is an irreverent and informative introduction to tricky questions about science. How do we know what dinosaurs looked like? Why does medicine taste so bad? Why don't airplanes fall down? Why Can't I Feel the Earth Spinning? encourages children to start asking and answering questions for themselves. The book is structured around twenty-two questions. Each section explores the question and answer with detailed illustrations, photographs, or diagrams and then asks further questions on a similar theme. Children learn about how their bodies work, why trees' leaves are green, why people dream, and whether "The Cloud" is really a cloud. Written with humor and full of fun illustrations, Why Can't I Feel the Earth Spinning? is the perfect primer for young inquisitive minds and budding scientists
