WHY?
Written and illustrated by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

A Neal Porter Book/Holiday House/August 2019

A plucky rabbit is endlessly fascinated by everything his friend, a bear, is up to. Whether it’s watering flowers, stargazing, or snacking on some honey, he asks the unchanging, inevitable question:

Why?

But sometimes, his friend just doesn’t know why.

From the two-time Caldecott and Geisel Honor Book winner, Laura Vaccaro Seeger comes this disarmingly simple story about a rabbit eager to understand everything about the world around him, and his patient friend who usually, but not always, has all the answers.

starred review/Booklist
“One of Seeger's great talents is distilling a child's concerns to their essence… Lovely, focused watercolor illustrations… This celebration of friendship, which Seeger moves seamlessly through the seasons, gives children the opportunity to intuit that, while things change, there is also stability in love and relationships. A poignant ending reiterates that bond, which will be touching for children who like to ask plenty of questions and for the adults on whose laps they sit.”
