Everyday childhood activities, such as an excursion to the park, splashing in the bathtub, or fixing a snack in the kitchen, can arouse many questions in young children. Why is the sky blue? Why does my stomach g-r-r-owl? Why do cows moo? Curious kids want to know, and no adult has all the answers.
The 10th anniversary edition of Why? provides kid-friendly explanations for nearly one hundred of these everyday mysteries for a whole new generation of children. This delightfully light storybook approach takes young readers inside the kitchen and out to the park, from the farm to the supermarket, and from bathtime to bedtime. The question and answer format reveals fascinating tidbits about nature, science and the world around us.
Bright, playful illustrations by Scot Ritchie are the perfect complement, setting the scenes for the common questions that kids ask. Perfect for reading aloud at bedtime or in a classroom setting, Why? combines the best qualities of nonfiction and picture book to delight young readers.
