Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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.

From the Back Cover

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.

if you have an energetic child like my 5 year old who is always asking why - this is a great book. I got this book around summer soltice when my sun did not understand why he is going to bed when it is so bright outside. By doing the "experiment" with an orange and a flashlight, I think he understands why we have seasons.

We used this book to discuss the science behind season changes and Winter Solstice with our five year old and his homeschool coop group. The book does a fabulous job of putting concepts into language that kids understand without watering down the information too much. The pictures and diagrams are great for visual learners as well!

I'm a student studying to become a teacher and I used this book to build a lesson plan. I think the concept of how seasons changes is presented in a manner for 2nd or 3rd grader to easily understand. The hands-on demonstration included in the book was also helpful is enforcing the concept of why there are 4 seasons. The additional resource information provided at the back of the book is also a helpful tool for use with modifying your lesson plan to meet various student learning levels. I will keep this book in my library for use when I do become a teacher.

I really like the "Let's Read and Find out Science 2" series. These are great science books for elementary school and they are perfect for my first grader. They use familiar examples to introduce basic scientific concepts in a simple but fun way. They are interesting for both kids and adults. I have found them to be a valuable tool to teach these concepts to my kids.

This book about the sun and its impact on the seasons is really fun. The diagrams are very well done.

I absolutely love the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series and for DD's birthday I got a few of the 2nd series books thinking that they would be ok for a 6 year old in Kindergarten who loves science.

We were fine for the introduction and she understood the basic concepts but then she got in over her head and we just looked at the pictures. I would suggest this book for a 2nd grader or an advanced child. It is a really nice book and I suggest it for future scientists!

Our three-year-old granddaughter loved this book. She's really interested in science, and I've bought her a number of books from this series. All are excellent.
