Why? by Laura Vaccaro Seger will strike a chord with anyone who spends time with youngsters. An eager rabbit is constantly asking his friend bear “why?” things are the way they are. Bear is the soul of patience as he explains the logic behind eating honey, watching stars and a myriad of other activities. Bear always seems to have an answer that satisfies rabbit until it’s time to hibernate and he is the one asking “why.” The illustrations are particularly endearing, capturing the exuberance of the bunny and the kind and even-tempered bear.
