BecauseBook - 2011
A little boy argues that "because" is a perfectly acceptable response to a question, in spite of what his mother says.
Jack's mom may tell him that "because" is not an answer, but he disagrees. In fact, this almost-six-year-old thinks "because" is the perfect answer . . . to any question!
Why did he cover himself in Band-Aids?
Why is the dog wearing a cape?
Why did he eat all the chocolate cake?
Richard Torrey's endearing companion to Almost and Why? celebrates every child's favorite answer to life's trickiest questions.
Six-year-old Jack, the star of Why? and Almost is back with a new word--"because"--which he feels is a perfectly valid response to any question--in spite of what his mother says. 15,000 first printing.
