Of course not; for he may be a genius on any one of them. But you cannot be prepared to answer him on all of them; if you were you would know everything. And yet he should have his questions answered while he is eager, or he may lose interest in what would otherwise make him successful and, maybe, famous. Is is not better to tell the child that you do not know, if you don't, and invite him to help you look up the ques tion in the Encyclopedia Britannica? In this way he soon becomes an investigator.
