How does a chick get out of the egg? Why do pigs roll in the mud? Why do horses sleep standing up? Catherine Ripley (a.k.a. "The Answer Lady") is back with a new title in the popular Question and Answer Storybook series for young children. "Why Do Cows Moo?" is a wonderful collection of some of the most common questions kids ask about animals, and answers adults will want to know before visiting the farm or country fair.

In an innovative combination that involves children, this book is a picture book as well as an information book. It tells a wordless story about a child's excursion to an agricultural fair with her best friend, and their first encounters with the feathered and furry creatures they find there. As the story unfolds, the answers to her questions are explained in easy-to-understand terms that will fascinate both child and adult. Information "Bits" end the book with more interesting facts.

The Question and Answer Storybook series is designed for parents and educators who have to face the delightful, and often puzzling, questions young children ask. Each book is rich in illustration and begins in a familiar setting, revealing the wonder of the events in the life of a young child. The questions are phrased as a child would ask them and answers are easily explained.
