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

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.See all Editorial Reviews
I hate to do this because I really like Gail Gibbons books, but this book about the seasons represents a very common misconception people have about why we have seasons. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Angela Hampton
