How & Why Stories

Martha Hamilton

Did you ever look carefully at a spider's web? Did you ever wonder what causes thunder and lightning? 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 the stories are told by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, authors of the companion book, How & 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.
