Richard Dawkins’ Children’s Book Revealed

May 17, 2011

Richard Dawkins has said for several years that he would like to write a children’s book about science. Apparently he has finally completed the task: The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True is due out Oct. 4, 2011. The 288-page book will be illustrated by Dave McKean, and will discuss questions like:

  • What are things made of?
  • What is the sun?
  • Why is there night and day — winter and summer?
  • What is an earthquake?
  • What is a rainbow?
  • Who were the first man and woman?
  • When did everything begin?
