Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-3?Gibbons seems to know just what teachers need to fill that open niche in their curriculum plans. In this title, she explains in succinct, easy-to-understand terms what causes the seasons to change in the two hemispheres. The text is amplified by her trademark illustrations done in bright, primary colors. Children have difficulty grasping the fact that the weather is just the opposite on the other side of the globe and why; this attractive offering will clarify that concept for them.?Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist

Ages 5^-8. Gibbons uses simple words and clear, colorful pictures to explain the seasons, the solstices, and the equinoxes. Besides discussing the earth's tilt and orbit, she also comments on what people and animals do in each season of the year. Brief and occasionally disjointed, these remarks will serve as a starting point for class discussions. Brightly colored pictures, as accessible and appealing as those in Gibbons' other books, illustrate the text. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book because it offers detailed, factual information about seasons, and doesn't leave any of the important concepts out. It also has great illustrations that are labeled. Gibbons gives children credit for being intelligent enough to understand the complex ways in which our world works, yet understands their developmental needs, and therefore makes the text accessible.

Format: Paperback
This was a great book for teaching that the reasons for the seasons is the tilt of the earth's axis. Very straightforward and easy to understand diagrams without being too technical. Great for grades 2 and up.

I got this book for my 3-1/2 year old. She has been curious this winter about the season and is waiting for spring to come. This book has many details about the different types of clouds, precipitation, leaves changing, the sun, etc. She really enjoys this book!

My three year old son is learning about seasons in school. We are skipping the parts about the positioning of the earth and the sun. He will be able to increase his understanding as he gets older.
