Let’s teach children to say “I don’t know” and help them understand the power behind it. Let’s talk to them about how it feels to not know something. And, finally, let’s be honest with children about the limits of our own knowledge. There is so much for all of us to wonder about together! For Emma Thank you to Amy Serkin Lenclos, Dalit Toledano, Amy Rennert, Susan Kaiser Greenland, Shelley Reicher-Lawrence, Tandy Parks, Jenny Meyer, and most important, my mother, Susan, and my husband, Sam – this book would not have been possible without your inspiration and guidance.

Eva walks down another path, looking for the moon, and a little, orange butterfly appears. Then she notices there are butterflies everywhere! ” “These butterflies have been flying around for a few days. But they started out as little caterpillars. And those caterpillars came from eggs.

Things are always changing. ” “I don’t know,” answers her mother. “It’s another mystery! I like trying to imagine what was here before the beginning of everything.

When children are embarrassed by or afraid of the feeling of not knowing, they are preoccupied with escaping their discomfort, rather than being motivated to learn.
