A Conversational Children's Book


¬©John Wood 2022

  • This proposal is an outcome of the metadesigning for children initiative.
  • It uses the 'storybook' genre to stimulate listener (child) and narrator (adult) in different ways.


  1. To strengthen bonds between parent and child by encouraging them to learn with, and learn from, one another.
  2. To encourage pre-literate listeners and post-literate carers/parents to play with questions & imaginative answers.
  3. To value curiosity and fun in a heutogogic approach (i.e. learning how to learn).
