A Book of Questions | Jane G. Meyer
20 posts | 2 read
Every kid has questions...and they also have the capacity to discover very interesting answers. In A Book of Questions, Jane G. Meyer leads kids through a pint-sized Socratic exercise in questioning the nature of the universe. Paired with Lucia Salemis whimsical illustrations, these questions are sure to get kids thinking, and coming up with new questions of their own.

A Book of Questions | Jane G. Meyer

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Do you make it a point to read books that have won awards? Are there any particular awards you like to follow? #BookTalk

Samplergal I do. I try to read some of the Booker prize long/ shortlist. I also like to read the Pulitzer sometimes, but it‘s not always a must. Sometimes I agree and sometimes I don‘t! 7mo
BillBlume Not really, but I‘m always excited when I learn a book I enjoyed wins something. 7mo
teebe I don‘t really pay attention to that. I tend to only realize a book has won an award when I pick it up and it has it listed on the cover. But there are a few books that I only found out about because other people who follow the prizes read them first. 7mo

Johanna414 I try to read the Michael Printz and Newbery award winners 7mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Not really. It's more of a bonus if I find out it's won awards. Although the Canada Reads awards tend to bring more books to my attention. But I don't necessarily seek them out. 7mo
Leftcoastzen I look at many of the prize lists but it won‘t make me read something on that basis alone. 7mo
taraWritesSci I don't, but like others, I'm happy for the author if their book earns an award. 7mo
Slajaunie I do not make it a point to read award winning books. I just read what I like, or think, I would like. 7mo
CouronneDhiver Nope... just pick and choose whatever feels right. 7mo
TheSpineView Not at all! 7mo
wordzie Award winning is good when u can't decide if I really want to read it or not, but all book a that win awards aren't always that great. Oprah's Book Club books are 😎 even though its not exactly an award. 7mo
LazyLimaLife Sometimes the award makes me shy away! I‘ve felt that some award winners were so overwrought and fiddly with characters, they couldn‘t possibly have been read by the people who make book award decisions. 7mo
cherinium Interesting question. Book awards are so low on my radar that I don't even know one from another. I wouldn't be able to tell you the first thing about any of them, much less which book has won them. 😝🙃🥇🥈🥉 7mo
JSW I don‘t pursue books that have won awards, but if I find myself reading an award-winner, sometimes I wonder *why* they won. 7mo
rwmg Once I've worked myself up to read Quo Vadis I will continue my quest to rwad 7mo
rwmg Read Nobel prize winners 7mo
Geeklet I try to read the Hugo nominees, at least for best novel. 7mo
dragondrool Not generally. I might look up the winner and grab a copy if it sounds interesting, but the award isn't a big influencer. 7mo
DGRachel I tried to read the Man Booker long list last year and hated 3 of the 4 I managed to get through. I tend to avoid award winners. 7mo
LibrarianRyan I try to real. Most of the Illinois Reads titles each year. The only ones I do t get read are normally adult and teen. 7mo
Peddler410 I follow ALA Youth Media Awards. I‘ve been focusing more on Stonewall Award and Schneider Award. 7mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I go for Booker books and Miles Franklin winners 👍 7mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Not sure if my earlier comment went through - but I gravitate toward the Booker and Miles Franklin winners 7mo
KarenUK I like to read the Women‘s prize for fiction (formerly Orange/Baileys prize) 7mo

My friend is trying to find the name of this book. I told her I would ask you super smart Littens.

Please see her description below and post if you know the answer.

Can anyone tell me the name of a book I read in college for a “middle school” English class. It was about a red headed boy who could see in color. And they killed twin children. The red headed boy kidnapped an infant twin child. It was also a movie. Thanks!

EllieDottie She may be talking about the Giver by Lois Lowry... Jonah doesn‘t have red hair but one of the first colors he sees is his friend‘s red hair and he kidnaps a baby it‘s not a twin but with twins in this world only one lives because otherwise twins would be different than everyone else. It‘s also a movie. (edited) 2y
melbeautyandbooks Thanks @elliedottie ! I will ask her and see if this is what she was thinking about. 2y

So my husband and I were having this conversation. He talks about book to movie adaptations looking exactly like he pictures them and I had to admit I don't ever really picture anything. I hear what I read (maybe this is why I hate I hate logorrheic prose.) So I'm asking...do you picture or hear?

OrangeMooseReads I do both. 2y
JoeStalksBeck Both. It's strange but in my head it's like watching a movie with subtitles 2y
Notafraidofwords @JoeStalksBeck yeah, same. However, not every book gives me vivid pictures. 2y
See All 59 Comments
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Notafraidofwords I'm wondering is I read fewer "vivid" books. Lol. 2y
RowReads1 Picture. It may have to do with if you're a visual or auditory learner. 2y
Bookworm54 This is a very interesting question. I probably mostly visualise. There are times where I'm so wrapped up in a story that I don't remember the words as such, just the events. But I guess it depends on the book? 2y
Foragingfantasy I do both. But I always picture and the people in the movie are rarely what I had imagined. 2y
heikemarie I don't actively picture, but I always have an opinion about whether the characters, set etc. look like what I imagined! 2y
Reviewsbylola Picture for sure. Not all the time, but many times characters remind me of certain people and I continue to picture them that way throughout the book. 2y
Lcsmcat I mostly hear. But sometimes when there's a lot of stage direction type writing, I'll find myself stopping and re-orienting in my mind. Like "OK, the desk was to his right. I had pictured it to the left." So I guess I do both. But I think I picture scenes more than characters, as if I were looking through the character's eyes. 2y
Purrfectpages I guess I tend to picture the book. This is probably why I'm often let down when the big screen depiction comes out. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Bookworm54 I'm the opposite. I tend to get wrapped up it the words. Sometimes I just sigh over the beauty of a phrase (geez I sound goofy) 2y
Simona Picture ... and when I'm not able to visualize the text in my head, then I know that - that book isn't for me. Only exception are nonfiction books. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Foragingfantasy oddly I think I'll see a movie before the book and of course I'll end up picturing that. If I like a book that becomes a movie I usually don't see the movie. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @inwhichHeikereadsharder and I can never explain it, but there are times where I don't like an adaptation and usually it has to do with the cast, but it's not like it's because of anything I pictured while reading. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Reviewsbylola I think that's happened toe a couple times. 😊 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Lcsmcat oh my eyes glaze over with that kind of writing. Maybe that's why I can't get into some fantasy. It feels like a lot of that to me. 2y
ChasingOm I've been trying more to stop when I read a description (of a character or place) and visualize it because it does get my investment up -- but sometimes the story is so engrossing that there's simply no good time to stop and take a minute! 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Lacythebookworm oooo. I haven't but I want to! 2y
AlaMich I do both. But I have a bad memory for plots and events in books; I mainly retain images. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Purrfectpages 😂😂😂 But I do understand that disappointment. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @ChasingOm I'm wondering if I should start doing the same. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @AlaMich I can never remember anything. My husband and daughter remember all these details. All I can remember is how I felt while I read it or where I was while reading. 2y
AlaMich @Sace I seem to know a lot of people who have astonishing memories for movies and books. They're always like, "remember that part when..." and I'm like ?? 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Simona 🤔 I do tend to read a lot of non-fiction (including news and magazines) so maybe that's why I am visualization impaired. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @AlaMich it makes me feel like a dullard. 😢 2y
AlaMich @Sace I try to console myself by deciding, that's just how I'm wired, not bad or good, just different. I wish I could remember more, though. It would sure be helpful when reading sequels. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @AlaMich 😂😂😂 Maybe this is why I don't like series. 2y
heikemarie @Sace Precisely! My reading on close reading 🤓 (literacy specialist here) says Visualizing is a great strategy but not one everyone uses. It sounds like you and I are not active users, but reading this thread is making me realize I'm in the minority here! 2y
Sydsavvy Totally visualize it! But I've also directed plays, and when you do that, you get to visualize then set the world yourself. It's so much fun! 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @inwhichHeikereadsharder sooo...since you're a literacy specialist... Do you think one who can picture what they read is a better reader? Or is that not a valid argument? I always thought I was a pretty good reader, but then I look at my husband and child who read so fast and can remember so much (they visualize) and I question my reading. But I read all.the.time and they don't read nearly as much as I do. 2y
Leelee.reads The degree to which you see pictures while reading (like a movie in your head) is determined by birth, but is also a skill that can be learned over time. Seeing the images increases reading comprehension -it should be taught as part of Language Arts starting early- but also increases enjoyment, engagement, and reading patience. A long description of a meal, or world building scenes in fantasy/sci-fi aren't boring if you're "in" them visually. 2y
Debiw781 I don't tend to visualize books a lot and I read fast. I read fiction vs nonfiction differently though so I remember more details with nonfiction. There are times when the beauty of a scene does stop me in my tracks though. John Grisham and his long winded details made me less enthusiastic over visualizing. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Leelee.reads I'm not sure I entirely agree with everything. I will still find a long description boring even if I'm "in" it visually. Especially if it has no bearing on plot or is just an author's attempt to show off some research. And to say that it increases enjoyment and engagement and patience seems like a broad generalization. I've been reading without it since before I started school... 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Leelee.reads (I was reading before I entered school) and for the most part I am happy with my reading experiences. I guess I'm just a contrarian and it sometimes rubs me the wrong way when we make pronouncements about what reading should be and how it should be taught. And I include myself in that too because I'm just as guilty as thinking you can make a person read a certain way. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Debiw781 I tend to remember non-fiction details for sure. I guess I just go into fiction with a more emotional engagement and since I tend to express myself more with words than say, art or photography, then I focus more on rhythm, structure, vocabularies and grammar and not on the images. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Leelee.reads and now I'm afraid I sounded bitchy and I don't mean to. 😭 2y
melbeautyandbooks I read an article about this recently. I seem to remember that it has to do with your genes. I see a book, like a movie, while I read. My husband does, too. He only reads a book occasionally. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @melbeautyandbooks I feel like I have too. I just wish I could remember where... 2y
melbeautyandbooks @Sace I remember seeing it on FB. I am trying to find it. If I do, I will post the link here in the comments and tag you. 2y
heikemarie @Sace I think it might be the wrong argument. A good reader is someone who uses multiple strategies fluidly to make meaning of text. You just use different strategies. The only thing that makes one a dysfluent reader is if they a) can't decode words (not a problem for most readers by our age) or b) they do not appropriately apply their reading strategies, which can happen for a number of reasons. You are a great reader! Not everyone is the same ☺️ 2y
heikemarie @Sace And by "strategies" I mean things like realizing you didn't understand a part of choosing to reread it, synthesizing or summarizing as you go, etc. for all you know, you're actually a better reader because you are slowing down to make meaning. I can't remember details for the life of me either. 2y
jfalkens Mostly hear but I will occasionally pause to picture. I seem to naturally picture only if it's really really really good as its rare. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @inwhichHeikereadsharder yes! Multiple strategies! And you're right once a person has been reading for eons we do all these things so fluidly and we don't even recall not knowing how to read or struggling to just decode. 2y
CouronneDhiver I visualize... always. And my husband is the complete opposite. Lol 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @jfalkens 9 times out of 10 is I *am* visualizing it's all hazy and dreamy. 2y
minkyb Picture which is why I almost always hate movie adaptations! 2y
Billypar Such an interesting question, as all the comments attest! I struggle to truly visualize what's going on: Usually it's limited to the sentence I'm reading and I really have to put some effort into visualizing the space around the characters. 'Hazy' and 'dreamy' are perfect descriptions for me. 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @minkyb 😂 This whole conversation with my husband started because he was so pleased with the Wrinkle in Time trailer. He said it was exactly as he visualized it. I read it for a Teaching Reading w/ Children's Lit course 20 years ago as an adult. I can't remember a thing about it. I just remember thinking it was very philosophical. I need to reread it now that I think about it... 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Billypar Glad I'm not alone. I think I tend to focus on ideas presented and mood as opposed to imagery and scenes. 2y
minkyb @Sace There is a dissertation in here somewhere‼️ 2y
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @minkyb 😄 I hope someone writes one and shares! I'm certainly too lazy to do it! 2y
moranadatter Both, but not always both at the same time if that makes sense. 2y
Bradleygirl Both! Sometimes a lot more mental picture, but never trying hard for it, sometimes it's just more atmospheric or easier to get lost in the action/visual. 2y

I honestly prefer paperbacks because they are just easier, although I do use my kindle pretty often, but since I request 95% of my books from the library, even when I am reading a series it doesn't matter what format. #bookishquestionftheweek

BookishBeth I live forever away from a bookstore or a proper library and therefore depend and rely on my Kindle to bring me words of joy. If I lived in a less-remote area I'd probably hoard paper books. 2y
Caroline2 I prefer paperbacks but I don't really mind what format they all are if it's a series. Not too keen on audio just cause I find my mind wanders then I miss stuff! 😳 2y
tysephine I definitely prefer paperbacks. Hardcovers tend to be larger and harder to fit in my purse. I worry about the dust jacket getting ruined, so I end up carrying around naked hardcovers. Paperbacks are smaller and easier. Ebook is better for romances - they're cheaper and more discreet. 2y

I prefer ebooks simply because I've run out of space and it's easier to carry my kindle everywhere. The format doesn't matter unless its tiny print or a heavy book and then I want the ebook. I used to care about the format of a series but now my series are all jumbled up.

#bookishquestionoftheweek

@BookishGirl06

Alisnazzy I like paperback because I find it easier to hold, especially if I'm laying out by the pool or beach and to carry in my bag. 2y
DGRachel This has changed for me over the years. I used to be a print snob, but then came to prefer the space saving and general convenience of eBooks. Now that I own my home, I want to build a physical library, so I prefer getting physical books again, but when it comes to reading, the format really doesn't matter. I prefer consistency in my series, but if I start a series in paperback and "catch up" to hardback publication, I'll buy new in hardback 2y
NovelGirl82 I prefer hardbacks. I always have. However, I have a kindle and a nook, & I use the crap out of them!! The only paperbacks that I have are a couple that only came out that way that I just had to have in print, and signed copies from different conventions. I do prefer that my series all be the same format. 2y

flip58 Paperbacks for reading. Use the kindle frequently for two reasons, I travel for business and I don't want to disturb my sleeping husband. I often travel with a paperback. Constant fear of nothing to read. 2y

The format depends on the book, and if it's a series that I auto-buy, but mostly I prefer paperback for transport purposes because I rely on public transport. I also make use of the library memberships to Overdrive and Hoopla for when I'm cleaning out cages and stitching. I didn't use to care if series were all in the same format; I'm more fussy now. My Saxon Chronicles (Cornwell) has every size and binding imaginable. #BookishQuestionOfTheWeek

BookishGirl06 I prefer paperbacks most of the time too. A lot easier to carry around 2y
SaturnDoo I use lots of formats. I like my 2 nooks and tablet for ease of carrying thousands of books vs 1 PB/HB and for changing font size...eyesight going downhill 😂 I like audios when I am crafting,cleaning,driving etc. But in all fairness, it's a book, I will read it however I can get it. 2y
UnidragonFrag I prefer hard copies. Doesn't matter to me if it's hard or soft cover (I have a pretty large purse). Lately, I've been getting into audiobooks, but even though I have a kindle with hundreds of ebooks, they're definitely my least favorite format. My eyes don't like the screens as much anymore. 2y

Zelma I prefer paper books lately to ebooks, but I am more worried about font size than hard or soft cover. Some paperbacks have tiny print so I do steer toward hardcovers more often. 2y
readinginthedark My series don't have to be in the same format necessarily, except if I listened to the first one on audio. Then I usually like to listen to the whole series. 2y
MaleficentBookDragon I'll read anything, but trade sized paperbacks are my favorite. 2y
Gissy I'm a hardcover lover, and yes they need to be in the same format, cover, and size! Does that mean that I'm OCD?😱 2y

A new thing I'm trying out. I will post every Saturday. To reply either comment below or make a new post and tag me and use #bookishquestionoftheweek

For me it doesn't matter too much, but I actually prefer all the books in a series to be the same type.

WarpedSweetness For me the book format doesn't really, each has its own characteristics. But if I have a series it must be all the same format. 2y
8little_paws I'll read whatever, but prefer hardcovers. 2y
BookishGirl06 @WarpedSweetness same. Thanks for answering. I have this weird thing where all the series need to match. 2y
See All 37 Comments
WarpedSweetness @BookishGirl06 Yes, the series has to match! And not just in format, but also cover wise. 2y
Nat_Reads I like paperbacks! Hardcovers are too clunky. 2y
BookishGirl06 @8little_paws Some hardcover covers are really awesome, the only thing that bugs me is the jacket never wants to stay in one place 2y
Jas16 I like reading in all formats- paperback, hardback, ereader and audio and don't have to finish a series all in the same format. 2y
LauraBrook @WarpedSweetness @BookishGirl06 Yes! Format and cover must match if at all possible!!!! 2y
BookishGirl06 @Jas16 I'm good with anything but haven't really tried audiobooks. Too worried I'll get distracted and lose my spot 2y
JoRead I don't mind the format if I'm only reading them but if it's a series and I'm collecting them I prefer hardcover (if available) because they are sturdier 😊 2y
Tillie I prefer hardcover but I will read anything. A few books I read on my kindle but love it so much (Shipping News, A Discovery of Witches) that I go buy the hardcover so I can hold the book. Traveling I will read a paper back or kindle because of the weight in my 🎒 backpack. 2y
BookishGirl06 @Tillie kindles are super convenient for traveling. Plus no waiting for your book to arrive either. 2y
Librarybelle My preference is for either hardcover or paperback. I'm reading more ebooks, but when I do read them, I miss the feel of an actual book in my hands. Occasionally, I'll listen to an audiobook. As for series books, I'm okay with a mixture of hardcover and paperback. 2y
rubyslippersreads My eyes prefer ebooks. If the ebook isn't available (or if the "real" book is collectible or otherwise too pretty not to buy ?), then I prefer hardcover or trade paperback. I haven't really gotten into audiobooks except when I can't sleep, and then I end up falling asleep! ? 2y
Pamwurtzler I read close to 100% on my kindle since I got it (almost 9 years ago now). The only thing I really miss about physical books is choosing the bookmark! #kindlelover But I do like the way a matched series looks on the shelf- either hardcover or paperback! 📚😀 2y
BookishGirl06 @Pamwurtzler I actually do have a few bookmarks. Probably 5-10 at least lol. I choose based on whatever I'm reading 2y
EllieDottie Hardcover.... Not as much... Yes! As much as possible! 2y
Amie I most enjoy a trade paperback and I like to be able to display my books on my shelves so in that sense I like physical books. But I love the convenience of my Kindle, too. I love being able to take my Kindle everywhere, especially on vacation and to have tons of books available without having to lug them around. And those cheap ebook deals are hard to beat! 2y
Billypar Paperback first, audio second. I don't like e-books only because of all the screentime I'm putting in for work and social media already--otherwise I'd be fine with it. Not really a hardcover fan- once in awhile. Mismatching series would be fine but don't read too many series. 2y
MedaReadsAlot I love my kindle and I hate to say it but as I passed that age I'd 40, I find being able to boost up font size is nice 😬 2y
BookishGirl06 @Billypar the downside to kindles is that you have to recharge them 2y
BookishGirl06 @MedaReadsAlot lol I wish I could do that with real books sometimes 2y
mskbp My first job was at a bookstore so I resisted ebooks for a long time, but I finally came around and now it's kindle every time! 2y
BookishGirl06 Edit:edited image earlier with something I should have done earlier 2y
kristen_in_wonderland Hard cover preferably, definitely all the same! I used an e-reader for a while, but reverted back to paper. 2y
Daisey I generally prefer paperbacks and ebooks for convenience when reading fiction. For a long time I read very little nonfiction, but now find I love it in audiobook for. If I'm reading a borrowed series I don't care at all about matching, but if I buy I want it the books to match on the shelf. 2y
ABrakes85 I don't generally mind but find the e reader easier but I do have to read a series and the same format 😊 2y
Kalalalatja I love a good hardback, and I definitely need all the books in a series to be the same format, size and shape. 😄 2y
Ms_T I prefer ebooks but if I have a series they have to be via the same ereader i.e. all Kindle/all Kobo/all iBook/all Google Play Books. 2y
minkyb I will read in any format except on my phone! With a series, I just want the next one asap! 2y
Scurvygirl Nope, doesn't matter to me. Reading is reading. A book is a book. Not everyone agrees and that's ok.💚 2y
Garabrandtreviews I will read any type. Generally, ebooks fit better into my lifestyle; but I am doing more park/ nature walks in an attempt to get healthy. Ebook on tablet or phone is not always congruent to rest stops 2y
jfalkens I prefer to read paperback books but will read hardcover too. I do like it when series covers match, same publisher so the covers coincide and same format. 2y
Gissy I'm a hardcover lover. I prefer the books from the same edition and same size. I prefer to buy new books instead of second hand. 2y
CarolynM Any format but if I really love it I have to have a hard copy and if it's a special favourite I have to have a hardcover 2y
Lifebetweenthelines Hard copy, 100%. Prefer hardcover because of less damage, but I would never turn down reading a book simply because it's paperback. I really don't like e-books, as the lack of physical pages showing my progression through the story doesn't feel as satisfying for me. Format doesn't matter, but series DO all have to be the same cover design and the same type (paperback or hardcover) so that they all look the same sitting together on the shelf 2y
abbsinwonderland Hard copy 11110% I can't bring myself to read anything digital. I love the smell of books and the feel of them in my hands. And turning the pages. Ahhh.🤗📖😊 2y

Mehso-so

This book is literally full of questions. Things both obscure and hard to explain like “How big is Love”, to simple, like “Who is your best friend”. Some questions are just fun, like “What would it feel like to saddle a shooting star and ride it straight across the sky”. A fun book to get kids talking.
