Summary:  A girl and a boy (siblings?) decide to go on a wonder walk, which consists of walking outside and wondering.  Is the sun the world’s light bulb?  Do mountains have bones?  Is rain the day’s tears?  And finally, Is the moon the world’s night-light?  They head for bed with the refrain, “I wonder. Me too.”  32 pages; ages 3-8.

Pros:  This would make a great writing or discussion prompt, as kids think of what they wonder about.  The collage art is incredible and definitely should get some Caldecott consideration.

Cons:  Most of the questions were in a similar format.  It would have been nice to switch it up a little since there is so much to wonder about in the world.
