Reviews - What do customers think about Why??

Four year old loves this book  Nov 10, 2006
This is a great book for starting conversations, and discussing the difference between silly and fact. My four-year-old daughter loves this book.
Love it!  Aug 16, 2006
Kane Miller Book Publishers brings us challenging and imaginative titles from around the world. I adore this book from Slovenia. Humor and facts work together in this animal book. Silly and factual answers to questions are the framework.

Why do whales spout water?
They're watering the sea grass.
It's their runy noses! They always have colds.
For fun.
* Whales don't spout water but from a distance it might look as if they do...When they come to the surface of the the water, they blow the moist air out fo their nose--the blowhole on top of their head.

The illustrations are chalk or pastel and will inspire the artist in all of us. This is a book I would want to share with art teachers.

It is also an excellent model for a research or Big 6 product. Animal reports are a staple of research skills lessons. Students could illustrate their animal and surround it with facts they discovered through research.
A Question by Any Other Name  Feb 8, 2006
I love the concept of this book and I think
parents and kids will have a lot of fun with it... and
there are just a few points of execution that would
make it even better.

Yes, the scientific "correct" answer is always
in the right hand column with a star next
to it... but the questions and the "wrong"
answers are scattered and not easy to immediately

Solution? Teach young children what makes a
question a question... and what makes a silly
answer just a silly answer... perhaps a note to
parents explaining this in the front of the book
would have been beneficial.

The illustrations are befitting the jungle
theme - whimsical, too - with the earthy tones
one delights to find.

My favorite question is "Why do rhinos have horns?"

Answers: You'll have to read the book to find out!
Why Should You Read This Book? To Have Fun Learning!  Sep 15, 2005
Lila Prap's "Why?" is a scientifically sound question and answer book disguised as a silly riddle book. Each two page spread features an animal, a question, and several possible answers. "Why do kangaroos have pouches?" One ludicrous answer is "To hide their bellybuttons." The correct answer is marked with a star, always found on the far right of the page. The rest of the ridiculous answers follow kid logic and some adult logic, especially those adults driven quite mad by a little one's unending "Why?" questions. While the illustrations and short text are well-suited to preschoolers, older children will also fully enjoy the book's information and humor. A nice introductory book to the mysteries of the animal kingdom for ages 4+.
