Synopsis: Dan asks endless questions as he learns about the world around him, but quick-thinking Dad is ready with some instant answers. Simple text deals with early learning concepts in an original way.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 1-- A useful title for one-on-one sharing or for a group read-aloud. A preschooler's nonstop queries are answered in an inventive manner by his patient father. "Why is the day light?" "Why are we the right way up?" "Why do the clouds move?" In response, the father conjures images of the confusion that would result if things weren't just as they are. The final question is reassuringly answered at bedtime; when asked "Why is there a world?," the loving parent states that without one there would be " . . . no you, no me, no questions. Good night now." On each double-page spread, Dunbar's rosy bright ink-and-watercolor cartoons contrast the chunky child and family at home with creative scenarios depicting his father's description of a world without logic. Although not all the answers work equally well, the pictures will hold the interest of children who themselves wonder how it all works. Parents who read the book just might find renewed energy to cope with their own youngsters' insatiable curiosity. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
