The Why-entist is a girl who asks a lot of questions! After her uncle cuts down a forest and causes a lot more carbon dioxide to get into the air, the weather gets wild with big winds and storms. The Why-entist asks librarians, an environmentalist, her family and a scientist about the change. They explain green house gas and how global warming works. She and her friends and everyone in town, except her uncle, decide to clean up the air by planting trees and using clean energy like solar and wind power. Can she and her friends help her Uncle change his mind?

I absolutely loved this book! It’s such a great way to introduce kids to the sometimes hard to understand subject of climate change. But this book really broke down the information and explained it on a level that a young child could understand. It also gave encouragement to let children ask “Why?”, “What?” and “How?” about topics they don’t comprehend but want to learn about. It’s so important that we have more books like this! Kids need to know they’re not going to get in trouble for asking questions. We need more curious minds out there.
Thanks again Jane Lowry for having me read this fantastic book! The words were wonderful and the illustrations were so fun! Can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
