How Kids Explore the World
When 9-year-old Aevi learned that he was going to have a little brother, he decided to write a book for his baby sibling that explained how kids explore the world. The result is a fantastic guidebook of what children go through in the first 10 years of their lives, sorted out in four critical topics per year and beautifully illustrated by the author. In this quintessential children’s book written by a kid as a loving gift to another kid, the readers will learn many important things about life in this strange world of ours, including how to distinguish dream and reality, what makes parents’ rules unfair, why friends are important, how to deal with complicated things, and which elementary school grade is the hardest of them all.

Between 2016 and 2018, Aevi, who was six and seven at the time, began reporting observations he had made about the world. Some of these were quite brilliant, some were strangely profound, others were plain funny, and still others utterly puzzling. But no matter what he said, he always spoke with a tone of confidence and authority as if he were revealing a higher truth that others were blind to. These observations were written down as "proverbs," short sayings of anonymous origin that convey some general truth about the world, since that’s what Aevi made them sound like. Compiled here is a selection of these proverbs, each beautifully illustrated by the same child reporter.
