Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

“Do white blood cells have white blood in them?”

Overheard in the playroom.

The Four-Year-Old: “Daddyo, do white blood cells have white blood in them?”

Daddyo: “No. Blood is made up of cells. Cells aren’t made up of blood.”

The Four-Year-Old: “What are cells made up of?”

Daddyo: “Cytoplasm and organelles.”

The Four-Year-Old: “What are organelles made up of?”

Daddyo: “Proteins and other stuff.”

The Four-Year-Old: “Like what other stuff?”

Daddyo: “Some of them have DNA in them.”

The Four-Year-Old: “What’s DNA?”

Daddyo: “DNA is like the programming for the body.”

The Four-Year-Old, not missing a beat: “Do sharks eat penguins?”
