Ladybird Books’ guide to experts: Part one

Who are THE experts?

Experts are the clever people.

They know about things that most people don’t understand.

Experts become super clever by doing ‘research’.

When we aren’t sure about something, experts are there to guide us.

We must listen to experts and not make mistakes.

Experts are here to help us

During our lives we have to make decisions.

Decisions are complicated.

Experts can show us how to make a complicated decision.

Experts show us what food to eat; how to bring up children; how we should vote and how to be good.

Experts show us what is right and what is wrong.

Political leaders

Politicians are worried that the people they rule don’t listen to them properly.

They ask experts to educate us.

To help us know when to listen properly, politicians say
“The research tells us that..”
“The evidence shows us that..”
“The data says..”
or
“The majority of experts believe that..”

When you hear these phrases, you must follow what they say. These are the words of the experts.

TV Experts

Experts help us by being on our televisions.

Many actors, TV celebrities and musicians are experts.

Who is there to help us?

– If we want to understand biology or public health policy, it is cheeky chef Jamie Oliver.
