Why Ask Why?

To learn silly! That's why.

Well, recently I purchased the book Why? by Lila Prap from my online book store.

Yes, I'm my best customer- I can't help it. I love books and I get excited about the new products that we get in. It's great to test them out on my kids! Usborne Books merged with Kane/Miller publishing, so we have an even greater selection of books.

Why? has won many awards and has received a lot of great reviews. It is a very simple book that asks questions like Why does a zebra have stripes? or Why don't snakes have legs?

I think that children are attracted to this book because of its humorous pictures and answers. Factual answers are included, but along with some very silly answers. This would be a fun book to use with kids to encourage creative thinking. They can come up with nonsense answers to the questions presented as well. Another fun idea for older kids would be for them to choose a few animals to research and create their very own Why? book.

Guess What? I have good news! I'd like to share a copy with one of my readers! To enter a chance to win your very own copy of Why? just pop on over to my website and take a peek. Come back over here and leave a comment about a book that you found interesting over at my site!

Right now my son loves the lift-a-flap books. "Cars Lift and Look" looks perfect for him.

The "How Big is a Million" book caught my eye. I remember trying and trying and trying to count to a million as a child (I never did get there). I also adore penguins!
