A lovely thing by lovely people for a lovely charity.
Perfect for kids who ask 'Why?'
A book like Does My Goldfish Know Who I Am? feeds our desire for understanding and logic rather than simply accepting facts.
Like the best of Pixar's output, it manages to be entertaining for people of all ages; so all-encompassing is its content that it is both an interesting source of facts for kids and, as Alexander Armstrong writes in his introduction, "an arsenal against future questions from the back of the car" ... Necessary reading for all ages. (Four star review)
The whole family will be hooked.
An invaluable spur to asking questions and thinking about answers.
