My daughter and I enjoyed it very much. It’s a quick read but it’s one that keeps you thoroughly entertained. I think for us it was such a good read because it was so easy being able to put on Archie’s voice and so my daughter laughed all the way through. While reading the story, my daughter even started answering some of Archie’s questions like “Why are the little stars so bright and twinkly?” Clearly she didn’t know the real answers, she is only 3 years old after all, but she did enjoy making them up and sometimes even came close to the truth. I even found after we’d finished she was asking questions herself in relation to the book. So Why could be quite educational in some aspects too.
In all, Why is a very funny and realistic story that many young children and parents will enjoy and I’d love to see more from Archie the Rhino and his questions.
Archie is a typical toddler though. Cheeky, inquisitive and bright, the story follows his adventures and home and in a museum. My son did enjoy it but he did seem confused by all the unanswered questions.
It's in some ways more for parents than children, a look at parenting a small child. But Archie is a nice little hero, he doesn't stop asking and wanting to know.
Great style of drawing, very child-friendly. Did like it but preferred Archie in "no" - that discouraged saying No excessively. Whereas I don't want to discourage my son from asking questions.

There is a reality here! It seems that the little ones ask the neverending "why." Actually many children never stop asking why no matter how old they get. It is fun to watch Otto explore although I cringe at the messes. The illustrations in this book are colorful, cute, and enjoyable to look at.
