Annaka Harris’ New Children’s Book Extols the Virtue of Saying ‘I Don’t Know’

It was just over a year ago when Annaka Harris launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her new children’s book I Wonder:

I Wonder is about a little girl named Eva who takes a walk with her mother and encounters a range of mysteries — from gravity, to life cycles, to the vastness of the universe. She learns to talk about how it feels to not know something, and she learns that it’s okay to say “I don’t know.” Eva discovers that she has much to learn about the world and that there are many things even adults don’t know — mysteries for everyone in the world to wonder about together!

A wonderful premise. Today, that book is finally available for preorder — it’ll be published on October 15:

Husband Sam Harris gives the book a rave review 🙂

I am very happy to announce that my wife and editor, Annaka Harris, has published her first book. The purpose of I Wonder is to teach very young children (and their parents) to cherish the feeling of “not knowing” as the basis of all discovery. In a world riven by false certainties, I can think of no more important lesson to impart to the next generation.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s a book secular parents can read to their kids at night and discuss for a long time to come. We could use more of those.
