The Best Ever Question and Answer Book About Nature, Science and the World Around You
Catherine Ripley
Illustrated by Scot Ritchie

Why does your stomach growl? Why do worms come out when it's wet? Why do horses sleep standing up? And how do bees make honey? (Remind you of several minutes in the presence of a curious 3-year-old?) This book takes a bunch of commonly asked questions (some of which you, the parent, already know how to respond to) and spells out the answers in a simple way that very young children can understand.

How you use Why? is up to you.

There are children who would be in 7th heaven simply cuddling next to you and going through the book, page by page, hungry for learning about the more than 70 subjects. Other children might want to page through the book, landing on a spread that s/he finds interesting and have you read the text aloud. There are families who just might want to pick up the book now and then, let it fall open, and read what is right there, and there are older kids who can read the text for themselves. And if you, the parent, aren't ready for the "Why is the sky blue" question, you could read up on it before your child even asks. A few trivia facts wrap up each of the 6 chapters. Cheery, colorful illustrations combine with manageable explanations to make this a book your family will enjoy in several different ways. We're all for encouraging curiosity and Why? sends the ever-so-important message that there's no such thing as a stupid question.
