Kindergarten-Grade 3 Colorful illustrations and clear easy-to-read text give this revised edition more appeal than the 1974 edition. The completely rewritten text is better organized with less repetition. It includes less descriptive information about the four seasons and places more emphasis on the causes of seasonal changes. A simply stated and carefully illustrated experiment using an orange, a pencil and a flashlight to help children actually see the differences on earth caused by the tilt of the earth as it rotates on its axis and revolves around the sun is particularly useful. A worthwhile addition, along with the 1974 edition and Berger's Time After Time (Coward, 1975; o.p.). For younger children, Gibbons' Sun Up, S un Down (HBJ, 1983) is a better introduction.Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, Ill.

The sun shines down on us, giving warmth and light. But did you know that the sun also makes the seasons? As the earth makes one complete rotation around the sun every year, the seasons on the earth change -- from winter to spring to summer to fall and back to winter again. Find out how the light from the sun affects life on the earth for all living things in this look at the only star in our solar system.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
