The Really, Really Big Questions series tackles some of the philosophical questions that older kids often ask their parents. These books are meant to bring these questions up for thought and discussion. There are five books in the series; MPL also owns Really, Really Big Questions About Space and Time and Really, Really Big Questions About God, Faith and Religion. And these are really big questions, like “Who are you?” and “Where is my mind?” It’s a thought-provoking read for curious kids and adults. The answers to these questions are understandable, but not oversimplified. Some of the responses are factual, some are philosophical. You may not always agree with the answers, but they make good starting points for meaningful talks.
