encouraging research

Typically when children ask questions I direct them to write a letter to our librarian because I want them to realize they can look up information- they don't just have to ask an adult. So, while we poured over a guided reading book today all about Rats (I know, a thrilling 8 page read) and a child asked a question not answered in text, my first response, without thinking was, "that's a good question for our librarian!"

Except the question was "Where do babies come from?"

I think I owe our librarian a huge apology if he follows through with his research...
