Each day we emptied the Question Box and looked at your questions. You asked all kinds! How does a spaceman walk in space? Why do leaves turn red and yellow in fall? How does television work?
Have you asked any of those questions? Do you know the answers?
Do you know what questions you asked most often? There were many questions about yourself, your home, and your school. You asked about puppies and bears and dinosaurs. You asked whether plants ever sleep. You asked why the sky is blue and why the tides come in and go out. You wanted to know about jet planes and submarienes, too, and what kinds of work people do at an airport and at a newspaper and what a fireman does.
You asked how popcorn pops and why we dress up as witches and ghosts and goblins on Halloween.
These are just some of the questions you asked.
Many people helped us find the answers. Now you can read the answers in your book, Questions Children Ask. You can see the answers, too, in the exciting, colorful pictures.
