Summary:  “Why?” a curious rabbit asks his friend the bear.  “Because flowers need water to grow,” answers the bear as he waters his flowers.  “Because they are very far away,” he responds as the two look through a telescope.  “Wind” is the simple answer as the rabbit hangs on to a branch, and “Gravity” as he is blown off and falls into Bear’s arms.  When Rabbit asks about a dead bird, Bear says, “I don’t know why. Sometimes I just don’t know why!” As he heads for his den, Rabbit begs him to stay.  Now it’s Bear’s turn to ask “Why?” To which Rabbit responds, “Because then I would miss my friend. That’s why.” 32 pages; ages 3-8.

Pros:  You can’t really go wrong with a Laura Vaccaro Seeger book.  This one is an ode to friendship and also parent-child relationships with adorable animal illustrations.

Cons:  All those “why’s” can get a little pesky.
