Everyday childhood activities, such as an excursion to the park, splashing in the bathtub, or fixing a snack in the kitchen, can excite 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 tenth anniversary edition of Why? provides child-friendly explanations for nearly 100 of these everyday mysteries for a whole new generation of children. Why? takes young readers inside the kitchen and out to the park, from the farm to the supermarket, and from bathtime to bedtime. Bright, playful illustrations by Scot Ritchie are the perfect complement, setting the scenes for the common questions that children ask.

Children want to know about everything. From the outdoors to the indoors, the mysteries of our world fascinate them. Children pepper adults with queries about all sorts of curiosities, but what adult has all the answers?

With questions culled from a pool of thousands submitted by actual children, the tenth anniversary edition of Why? The Best Ever Question and Answer Book about Nature, Science and the World around You by Catherine Ripley fields the tough questions, like Why do I have to go to the bathroom?, Why is the sky blue? and Why do onions make you cry?

This question and answer book tackles topics from bathtime, nighttime and the kitchen to the outdoors, the farm and the supermarket. Age-appropriate answers clearly and concisely address questions curious children pose. The Bits section at the end of each chapter provides additional information for children who want to know still more about the subject. Large type and playful illustrations help make this informational book suitable for younger readers. An index makes for simple referencing.

The perfect book for the child who always asks Why?
