As far back as I can remember, my mother used etiological stories to explain to me natural phenomena like how the zebra got its stripes and why the rainbow appears after it rains. 
Pourquoi stories ("pourquoi" means "why" in French), also known as origin stories are fictional narratives that explain why things are the way they are. They're not usually rooted in empirical truth but they're fun to tell and enrich childrens' imaginations.
Inspired by an inquisitive 6 year old who wanted to know why the sun was still shining on a rainy day,  Lisa Christoffersen authored a children's book titled A Monkey's Wedding continuing the rich tradition of storytelling.
Join Little Charlie as he discovers the true meaning of an adventure through the Kenyan Forest!
