Equipping parents, grandparents, teachers and child care providers with practical ideas for nurturing children’s curiosity and critical thinking beyond the classroom, Did You Ever Wonder? is a must-have for anyone who has a hand in raising curious children.
What to expect? John Barell (author of Why Are School Buses Always Yellow?) shows how curiosity can be drawn out and used for learning in all kinds of situations including after school activities, cultural visits or even at home in front of a computer.
Each chapter features a colourful anecdote as an introduction followed by a wide range of hands-on activities and simple tools that educators and parents can use.
A valuable resource for parents who are new to inquiry-based education as well as educators who want to enhance and expand their units of instruction.

Playing, building, dancing, exploring resources—examples of some of the many ways children can learn through inquiry.
Ways to Learn Through Inquiry, written by Jo Fahey, makes an enormous contribution to the IB’s inquiry-based Primary Years Programme. The author charts how the understanding of inquiry has evolved since the inception of the PYP and then offers a rich range of classroom-proven engagements to inspire young children to inquire and take action.
