Very colorful illustrations and packed full of interesting information. Kids are curious, and these types of books are great ways to get them interested in science and nature. There are a lot of things children want to know about the world they live in, and this book answers a lot of questions they might have. It could be used within a science lesson or it could just be an option for the students within the classroom library. ( )

Simple and satisfying answers to questions young children love to ask -- and it's a picture book too!

Why is the sky blue?
Why is soap so slippery?
Why do stars twinkle?
Why does my stomach g-r-r-owl?
Why do cows moo?

These are just some of the charming questions that are answered in this generous and richly dynamic collection of the six books from the Question and Answer storybook series. Everyday childhood activities, such as an excursion to the park, splashing in the bathtub, or fixing a snack in the kitchen, prompt so many questions for young children. Why? provides easily understood explanations for dozens of these everyday mysteries.

A delightfully buoyant storybook approach takes young readers inside the kitchen and out to the park; from the farm to the supermarket; and from bathtime to bedtime. Along the way, the simple question and answer format reveals much valuable and fascinating information about science, nature and the world around us.

Bright, playful illustrations are the perfect complement, telling the story behind common questions that curious kids ask-and explaining the answers that parents and teachers want to know. Perfect for reading aloud at bedtime or for use in a classroom setting, Why? combines the best qualities of educative nonfiction and joyous storybook to delight young readers.

Offers questions and answers about topics including why cats' eyes shine in the dark, why the sky is blue, why peaches are fuzzy, how bees make honey, why soap is slippery, and why some people bring their own bags to the supermarket.
