Did you ever look carefully at a spider's webs? Did you ever wonder what causes thunder and lighting? Why do dogs chase cats? Why does it look like there's a man in the moon? In this delightful recording of tales from around the world, each story explains why an animal, plant, or natural object looks or acts the way it does. Four of these stories are told by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, authors of the companion book, How and Why Stories: World Tales Kids Can Read and Tell. Because the authors wish to inspire children to tell stories, the remainder are told by eight guest kid tellers. So listen to these stories, retell them, and then make up your own how and why stories. Download and start listening now!

    " I haven't read too many other how and why stories, so I enjoyed this short-and-sweet collection of such stories from all over the world. I particularly liked that each story ended with tips for telling as well as a few scientific details about why and how the animal actually got its characteristic. "
