The "Because, my love..." books are about discovery. In "a home for our chickens", a daughter learns a number of lessons, from the reasons for recycling to the importance of patience, as she and her father build a chicken coop. In "to bake a bread", a son learns about considering his health and that of the environment while baking a bread with his mother. Both books highlight the importance of curiosity and reasoning through touching stories of children growing closer to their parents.

The ideas represented in these books are relevant to readers of all ages. The books themselves are likely appropriate for children between the ages of three and nine. Constructive feedback is much appreciated. Please post it as a review on, or email it to
