Why does medicine taste so bad? Why don't airplanes fall down? Why Can't I Feel the Earth Spinning? encourages children to start asking and answering questions for themselves. The book is structured around twenty-two questions. Each section explores the question and answer with detailed illustrations, photographs, or diagrams and then asks further questions on a similar theme. Children learn about how their bodies work, why trees' leaves are green, why people dream, and whether "The Cloud" is really a cloud. Written with humor and full of fun illustrations, Why Can't I Feel the Earth Spinning? is the perfect primer for young inquisitive minds and budding scientists."@en ;
