Um… With your imagination?

Any one got a better answer for The Five-Year-Old? She doesn’t like mine.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Please tell the five-year-old that I know how they work and I know how to make one. Summer is the perfect time and we will make a magic time machine when I come to visit. I never told you about this because the knowledge has to skip at least one generation.

    The Doctor’s time machine apparently has a black hole as part of its inner workings. There is a book on this that I read one time many summers ago.
