gayle kimball, author
Since a photograph is worth a 1,000 words, this book uses images to spark family discussion of important questions on the minds of young people. Dr. Kimball added brief comments to initiate thinking process about the meaning of life! Questions covered in the book include what is the purpose of life, why are there so many religions, what is happiness, why is there inequality, what happens after death, what's the Big Bang, why is climate changing, and what is success? The author started asking open-ended questions of young people in 2002 and eventually surveyed or interviewed over 4,000 students from 88 countries, as reported on in a series of books. They want to know why we’re here and what happens after death, as well as questions about our world from a science and social science point of view. She found them to be very caring about helping other people. Now young children are taking a lead in advocating environmentalism to stop climate change and are asking deep questions.
