About the Book

As parents and guardians of children we want to protect them and keep them safe. But at one point does too much protection become detrimental? This book lets you explore that in a safe, fun environment. To not know is a dynamic, creative space that is very often robbed from our children by our well-meaning attempts to care for them. This book not only introduces them to that place but also the benefits of being there. Your child will learn how to get to this place, what to expect while there, how to carry this place throughout their daily life, to trust the truest expressions of themselves and in the end to be comfortable with not having everything figured out. These important complex lessons are made through simple easy language, examples, and humorous beautiful illustrations that are presented in a way that is comprehensible and entertaining to your child.

About the Author

Lynn Battaglia loved being a child and never wanted to grow up. So, it seems fitting that she has finally made her way into the land of children’s literature. The idea for this book initially came to her one misty morning while waking up from slumber. This idea then persisted through the unrelenting pestering of a new muse, a certain mole rat, who insisted on being the prominent character and portal through which one could journey to this wonderous place of Not Knowing. To appease the demands made on her by this new muse, she wrote. The result is “The Space of Not Knowing.” This is a tale she wished someone would have told her when she was a child. Her hope is that the words on these pages will be helpful to all that read them.
