Because by Richard Torrey is an adorable picture book about a little boy who’s mother says “because” is not a real answer to a question. Each page displays a picture of the little boy, and his faithful dog, in the middle of some sort of mess they have made. Above each of the pictures is his reasoning, starting with “because,” followed by why he has made the mess. His big, smiling face makes it difficult to be upset with him for the messes he has made. Each page is illustrated in bright colors, full of detail, making it very clear what he was attempting to do when he causes all of the trouble. See this book listed in our catalog
