Did You Burp? How to Ask Questions (Or Not!)

By April Pulley Sayre / Illustrated by Leeza Hernandez

Ask me anything! (Almost.)

Do you need help? What's for lunch? Where do zebras live? How much do you weigh? We ask questions every day. Many, many questions. We need to gather information for many reasons: to learn, to satisfy curiosity, to get around, to find out about one another, and so on. But learning how, when, and why to ask questions, and what questions to ask, can be tricky. In this fun, quirky story with exuberant illustrations, readers visit a classroom of kids who gleefully explore the many ways of asking questions, how to ask them, and also what NOT to ask. And when the president of the United States comes to visit, it's the perfect opportunity to put their question-asking prowess to work.

Kirkus Reviews, starred review

What are questions, and what are they good for? On a beach, in a garden, visiting a museum, sitting in class with the president of the United States (a woman of color, as it happens), and elsewhere a racially diverse and compulsively inquisitive group of children demonstrate the ins and outs of productive questioning: "Are you the new teacher?" "Is this a veggie burger?" "Do you know if walruses have ears?" "Where do you park Air Force One?" Sayre describes how speakers use words such as "who" or "where" plus intonation to formulate questions in English (with a brief excursion into Spanish: "Where is the gerbil?" "¿Dónde está el jerbo?"). In explaining that questions can express curiosity or care for others as well as simply act as requests for information, she also points out situational subtleties: "Did you burp, Madam President?" can be discomfiting in some contexts, for instance, but appropriate in, say, the course of a medical exam. She also suggests that "How" questions can "ask in a gentle way about feelings, tender topics, and complicated subjects," and that it's OK to make mistakes in the course of learning what works and when. Younger audiences, hard-wired to start asking questions from an early age, at last have a toolbox for formulating more and better ones. "So be brave," the author concludes. "Be bold. Ask questions!" Funny, thoughtful, and rewarding to read, no question.
