Well, I remember when I was six years old, a friend of my father’s sent me a series of books named Hundred Thousand Whys, and these books later tuned to be something invaluable throughout my childhood.
These books are divided into different themes, among which are culture, science, nature, arts etc. In each book, it tells many different interesting stories attached to its main theme. What I like most about these books, is that each and every page of whichever one of them, has some delicately painted illustrations. Even though I hadn’t known many words yet at that time, I could still figure out what the contents were about with the help of those vividly drawn cartoon pictures. I can still remember one story that tells about tomatoes. According to the book, tomatoes were regarded poisonous when first discovered by people and thus were only used for ornamentation. But then, a brave painter ate one tomato and found it extremely delicious. He then announced to the public that tomatoes were not poisonous at all. It was until then the tomatoes became something widely seen in people’s daily dishes. Interesting and educational at the same time, right? Well, there are actually a lot of other stories like that, which I liked very much as a young girl.
As for why I like them, well, I’d have to say that, this whole series of books was really an eye-opener to me. It showed me what the world out there actually looked like, and told me many interesting stories behind the things closely related to our daily life. It showed me how to look at this world from a different approach. My curiosity was totally fired up by these books, which later resulted in my choosing science as my major in university.
Anyway, I had a wonderful time with the company of these exciting books throughout my childhood, and I do want to thank my father’s friend for giving me such a great chance to explore what the world is truly like at a young age.
