A year or more ago, NY Times reporter Wendell Jamieson solicited questions from kids for a book that he was writing. My son Jio was at an inquistive age (he still is, actually) and wanted to know why clouds make shapes. If you know the answer, don’t tell me. We’re waiting to read the book. Mr. Jamieson selected Jio’s question, and approached an expert to get the answer to this and others that have stumped parents. His book, Father Knows Less, is now in print.
Yesterday, Jio asked me why some dogs have pointy ears and some have floppy ones. Ummm…evolution?
