Everyday activities such as taking a trip to the park, splashing in the bathtub, or fixing a snack prompt many questions from young children. Why is the sky blue? Why is soap so slippery? Why do cows moo? Curious kids want to know, and adults never seem to have the answers. Why? provides easily understood explanations of dozens of everyday mysteries. This delightful book takes readers to the supermarket and the park, around the home and onto the farm, and from bath time to bedtime. Bright, playful illustrations are a perfect complement to the text, adding a further level of explanation.

An excellent resource for those pre-school Einsteins that persist with the word "why". A couple facts for the aging Einsteins as well.

This is an awesome book that has answers to questions that many children have, such as "why is the sky blue?" and "what makes the doors at the grocery store open when people walk in?". Although may readers have felt this book is appropriate for children 8 years and older, if you have a curious child, I recommend reading a few pages a day to them starting at 3 1/2 or 4 years old. My granddaughter loved it!
