Staff Reviews


In high school, I was very good at asking a lot of questions in class, and I learned so much more because of it. BUT, it took a lot of encouragement earlier in my life to get there. Talking at all, and especially admitting you are lost, in front of classmates can be scary! This book gives that needed encouragement to speak up beautifully.

— Petra

Description


From rising picture book star Andrew Arnold comes I Have a Question, a book for anyone who’s ever felt too shy, too afraid, or too silly to raise their hand and ask a question.

For Stevie, speaking up in class can be scary. So, when Ms. Gail asks, “Are there any questions?” Stevie looks around the classroom, hoping someone will raise their hand. But no one does. No one has a single question. Except Stevie.

“I can’t ask, can I? If I do, I know just what will happen,” Stevie thinks, beginning a journey of worried imagination. Everyone will certainly laugh, they'll think the question is silly, they'll think Stevie is silly.

But Stevie has to know. Stevie has to ask.

Written with terrific humor, empathy, and tenderness, author-illustrator Andrew Arnold's I Have a Question is wonderfully funny and mightily empowering--inspiring anyone who has ever felt too shy, too silly or too afraid to raise their hand.

Praise For…


"A warm and witty ode to curiosity." - Mac Barnett, Caldecott Honoree and New York Times-bestselling author of Sam & Dave Dig a Hole

"This funny and relatable book shows how sometimes even one small act of personal bravery can feel as big as interplanetary travel." - Barbara Lehman, Caldecott Honoree and New York Times-bestselling author of The Red Book

"Reluctant queriers will relate to the issues raised by the story, which doesn’t take itself too seriously, and may well feel a sense of relief and reassurance. Although some of the questions are actually quite ridiculous (“Can I be a moth?”), the act of asking them isn’t." - Horn Book
