Why Are You Doing That?Book - 2014
Chepito is full of questions. Why is his mother cooking eggs and frying beans? Why is Manuel digging around the corn? Why is Ram#65533;n milking the cow? Why is Maria slapping dough between her hands? In this simply told story, a little boy learns all about food and where it comes from. Following on the success of What Are You Doing? Elisa Amado and Manuel Monroy have created another gem of a picture book, this time about food -- where it comes from, how we nurture food plants and animals, and what we eat to be healthy and strong. Manuel Monroy sweetly depicts Chepito's world -- a rural community where people grow much of their own food and raise chickens and cows -- giving young children a clear picture of the origins of foods they consume every day. Includes a short glossary.
