BUT WHY? with Jane Lindholm and Melody Bodette


Do you want to know why goats have square eyes? Why pigs’ tails are curly? Or why horses sleep standing up? The creators of the internationally popular kids podcast But Why, from Vermont Public, have the answers! But Why: Live! takes audiences on a barnyard romp. Kids in the audience will learn about all kinds of farm animals as they get to choose which questions get picked. They’ll even learn some really fowl language! (Adults, don’t worry–we promise you’ll approve.) 


From the creators of the popular podcast But Why comes a new illustrated nonfiction series for kids answering all their most curious questions! Featuring tons of sidebars, illustrations, and real questions from real kids, these books will keep young readers engaged and entertained as they dive into the pages. Book 1, Are Llamas Ticklish?,uncovers the most curious features of various farm animals and helps kids understand the world of agriculture. And Book 2, Do Fish Breathe Underwater, explores the science and mysteries of the deep blue sea!


Join us after the show for lunch. Pratt’s Store will be cooking up food for the whole family in the alley next to THT. Jane and Melody will be signing their new books, available for purchase at the event from Vermont Book Shop. And Northern Vermont Llama Company will be there with llamas! Find out on your own if they are ticklish.
